Q Could you give us your assessment of your meeting with the Chinese leader?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I'm sure you've gotten a report. I think it went very well. It was a good meeting, and I think that the next steps were appropriate.
Q You're looking forward then to going to Beijing?
THE PRESIDENT: Very much.
Q Mr. Prime Minister, the last time you met with Mr. Clinton, you gave him a saxophone. What are you going to do this time to make him happy? (Laughter.)
THE PRESIDENT: And I played it, too.
PRIME MINISTER HASHIMOTO: What should I do about that? I think you're giving me more difficult questions than you're giving to the President. Well, it's a diplomatic secret. (Laughter.)
THE PRESS: Thank you.
