Shultz to Continue at State

President Reagan has requested that George Shultz continue in his post as Secretary of State in the next term, according to State Department spokesman John Hughes. Hughes stated last week that Shultz “is honored to continue.”

Shultz and the President have had several conversations and meetings recently including one last Wednesday which included the national security adviser, Robert McFarlane. Hughes stated that the three officials discussed the course of foreign policy. The White House is said to have described the meeting as “a rich discussion on a broad range of foreign policy matters.”
