We cooperate in such a broad range of areas, which is truly breathtaking as you described, everything from security and economics, to people-to-people tie to the environment, energy, and health. We have built, over the past 25 years, an extraordinary partnership and friendship. I am very proud of that. I actually think one of the most important parts of our relationship is our strong people-to-people tie.”
