An 8:30 A.M. brkfst. with Bi-partisan Cong. leadership. We briefed them on our competitiveness proposal—Jim Baker, Bill Brock & Clay Yuetter. Then a discussion—all in all a pretty good tone to the meeting. Then an N.S.C. brief—I approved an approach to the S.D.I. hassle. Later on briefing for P.M. Shamirs meeting—then a one on one between me & the P.M. I asked him to not lobby our Cong. against arms sales by us to certain Arab States. Israels position is one of opposition on the grounds that a state of war exists between them & the Arab States. All in all though we solidified our relationship & the subsequent plenary meeting & working lunch went very well. He’s going home quite happy. His departure statement was a glowing tribute to me & our country.

Geo. S. came by with some long range plans for me—visits to Philippines & India etc. Ended day meeting with Frank Donatelli who is taking over the pol. Liason post & Jack Koehler who replaces Pat B. Upstairs for rest of day—some mail & then a work out in the gym.
