Saw Foreign Minister Abe to Japan. Last time he was in the Oval O. I had told him Congress was ready to go for protectionist legislation I might not be able to stop mainly because of their auto sales. He returned to Japan & a short time later Japan announced it’s voluntary limit on export to U.S. of their autos. Things are better now but let him know there was still a protectionist sentiment in Congress. N.S.C. meeting about whether to take on Congress for mil. aid to the Contras in Nicaragua. Everyone had his say & I then announced they wouldn’t have to wait for my decision. The answer is “yes” we must come to their aid. This does not mean however use of Am. troops.

Had an interview with 5 European journalists, U.K., Italy, France, W. Germany & Austria. Entirely on Kadafi & Europes “no sanctions” policy. I think it came off well. A meeting with Geo. Shultz—our usual Fri. round up then off to Camp David.
