SECRETARY CLINTON: (In progress) privilege of hosting. We know that this is an especially busy week here in New York (inaudible) at the United Nations General Assembly. I’m well aware that some of you have at least one more dinner to go to. Somebody may have even more than one dinner to go to if you’re especially popular with all of the invitations. But we wanted to have this opportunity to discuss a variety of issues, particularly when it comes to security, and the many opportunities over the next months. We have an U.S.-EU Summit; we of course have the NATO summit, an OSCE summit, and, if the invitation is accepted, a NATO-Russia Council meeting. And each of those is an opportunity to discuss the common challenges and to seize the opportunities for greater cooperation between our Euro-Atlantic partners so we look forward to the conversation tonight. We will understand if people have to leave to make their next appointments, but I want to thank you for joining us here this evening and I look forward to the conversation.
