You are going to Austria on Tuesday. Do you intend to discuss the minority problem with the president of Austria?

However, we shall certainly touch upon the standard issues, which probably includes minorities, too. Although the president presently may not be able to say or do anything new on the subject. We have to wait for the new government.”
