Depressing because there’s so little optimism in the expert community, and there’s so much concern that we are heading in the direction that neither of us really seems to want but neither of us can avoid. And that direction seems to be bringing us to the potential for conflict... That generates the commitment, which was the positive side of the discussion. We had a very pragmatic discussion.

Secondly, we need diplomacy to try to lower that danger”,  Former Secretary of Defense (1994 – 1997) William Perry.
