At the gate of the Exhibition, Mr. Khrushchev voiced a gibe about the United States ban on the shipment of strategic goods to the Soviet Union.
Khrushchev: "Americans have lost their ability to trade. Now you have grown older and you don't trade the way you used to. You need to be invigorated."
Nixon: "You need to have goods to trade."
The statesmen went on to look at television and video tape equipment for playing back recordings. Mr. Nixon took a cue from it.
Nixon: "There must be a free exchange of ideas."
Mr. Khrushchev responded with a remark touching on the reporting of his speeches on his recent Polish tour.
Mr. Nixon said he was certain that Mr. Khrushchev's speeches and those of Frol R. Kozlov, First Deputy Premier, had been fully reported in the West.
Khrushchev (indicating cameras recording the scene on video tape): "Then what about this tape?" (Smiling.) "If it is shown in the United States it will be shown in English and I would like a guarantee that there will be a full translation of my remarks."
Mr. Nixon said there would be an English translation of Mr. Khrushchev's remarks and added his hope that all his own remarks in the Soviet Union would be given with full translations in that country.____________________
