Title: Henry Kissinger interview
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Kissinger, Henry
Abstract: Examines the importance of negotiation with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, as well as the state of affairs in Europe and the Middle East.
Description: As the first year of the Reagan administration draws to a close, host Peter Krogh sits down with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to discuss the President's policies and the current state of global affairs. Perhaps one of the most influential foreign policy advisors in the history of the United States, Dr. Kissinger served first as National Security Advisor under President Nixon and later as Secretary of State. During the Nixon administration Kissinger provided impetus for the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, pioneered the opening to China, and was a steadfast advocate of the power of diplomacy. In this conversation on world affairs, Dr. Kissinger discusses the importance of continued negotiations with powers unfriendly to the US, the role Europeans play in the diplomatic tug-of-war between Moscow and Washington, and the fragile state of conditions in the Middle East.
