Dear Senator Stevens,
May I acknowledge with thanks receipt of your letter dated 5th July 1988.

It was extremely interesting to see copy of your correspondence with Secretary Schulz regarding the joint statement by President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev in support of the Olympic Movement and I thank you accordingly.

I sincerely hope that a solution can be found to this problem and we are doing our utmost in this regard, nevertheless I am not very optimistic.

Yours sincerely,
