Abstract:

I intend to discuss the prospects for SDI in a changing world situation. My bottom line is that the prospects are good. Recalling the language of my diplomatic years, I would say I am cautiously optimistic for at least two reasons first, because we are in fact dealing with real problems. Second, because of some published statements attributed to President-elect Clinton--although the record is not entirely consistent, and therein lies a problem. Let me first elaborate on my reasons for cautious optimism and then discuss how I am planning our programs for a hand-off to my successor.
