[The Prime Minister was asked whether he was optimistic about the future of Czechoslovakia].

PRIME MINISTER:

If I were not optimistic about the future of Czechoslovakia I wouldn't have been part of the United Kingdom Government that pressed so strongly, and first, for an Association Agreement with Czechoslovakia and I certainly wouldn't be advocating as strongly as I am now the future membership of Czechoslovakia within the European Community.
