The President's Radio Address

June 30, 2001

    Good morning. It's the Fourth of July this coming week, a proud day 
for all Americans. Two hundred and twenty-five years ago the Continental 
Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. That document's bold 
words defined our Nation and inspired the world, but words alone did not 
secure America's independence. In 1776 liberty had to be defended by 
brave soldiers and sailors at the risk of their lives, and liberty is 
still defended by brave men and women today.
    Much has changed over the past two centuries for the people who wear 
the uniform of the United States. Our Armed Forces have grown into the 
mightiest on Earth, and their responsibilities extend all over the 
world. Yet, the courage and patriotism of our service men and women are 
as sure and as strong as ever, and we owe them the same appreciation 
that we feel for the soldiers of Bunker Hill, Valley Forge, and 
Yorktown. We owe them fair salaries, first-class health benefits, and 
decent housing. And what we owe, we will pay.
    This past week I announced an amended budget request for the 
Department of Defense in 2002--32.6 billion more than in 2001--to 
improve the training, readiness, and quality of life of our troops. This 
is the biggest defense increase since the Reagan buildup of the mid-
1980s. For too many years, our strength has dwindled. Now we are 
rebuilding once again, and our first priority is the well-being of men 
and women in uniform.
    Two-thirds of our military family housing units are listed by the 
Department of Defense as being in poor condition. This will change. We 
have other defense priorities, as well. Secretary Rumsfeld is completing 
a review of the mission and structure of our Armed Forces. Soon we'll be 
proposing a new defense strategy for a new age, a strategy that 
recognizes the cold war is over but that threats to our security still 
remain. We are consulting with our allies, with Russia, and with others 
on a defense system that will protect our country, our forces, and our 
friends from missile attack and nuclear blackmail.
    It's time for fresh thinking and rapid change in our national 
defense, to prepare for challenges that are changing just as quickly. 
One thing will never change, the quality and dedication of the men and 
women who wear America's uniform. They give their best; they are the 
best; and they deserve the best. There is no greater honor for a 
President than to serve as Commander in Chief. And my budget priorities 
reflect the pride I feel in the outstanding people who serve and protect 
us all.
    I urge the Congress to promptly approve my defense requests, which 
will assure better pay, better housing, and better health care for our 
Armed Forces. And I wish you and your family a happy and safe Fourth of 
    Thank you for listening.

Note: The address was recorded at 1:04 p.m. on June 29 in the Cabinet 
Room at the White House for broadcast at 10:06 a.m. on June 30. The 
transcript was made available by the Office of the Press Secretary on

Remarks Following Discussions With Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi of 
Japan and an Exchange With Reporters at Camp David, Maryland

June 30, 2001

    President Bush. It is my honor to welcome the Prime Minister of a--
of our close friend and ally. We had a 2-hour meeting, a very frank and 
open discussion. There's no question we will work together. There's no

[[Page 1000]]

question in my mind our relationship will never be stronger than under 
our leadership.
    We talked about security matters. We talked about economics, and I 
want to praise the Prime Minister for his vision for reform for the 
Japanese economy. He's willing to make difficult choices, and that's 
what a leader does.
    We talked about the environment. We talked about baseball. And we 
talked about the need to make sure that we work for a more peaceful 
world. And I'm confident we'll be able to do so.
    So, Mr. Prime Minister, welcome.
    Prime Minister Koizumi. It was a wonderful meeting, and I believe we 
were able to establish a relationship of trust. It was a heart-to-heart 
meeting. This was truly a wonderful meeting. I did not feel--or I did 
not, at the outset, believe that I would be able to establish such a 
strong relationship of trust with the President in my first meeting, 
which was much more than I expected.
    In the Genoa summit, upcoming summit, and during the President's 
visit to Tokyo this fall, I am certain that we will be able to have an 
even closer relationship during our meetings.
    President Bush. We'll answer a few questions.
    Mr. Prime Minister.
    Q.  I have a question for both of you, if you don't mind. First----
    President Bush. He's given one question, and of course, he asks two.

Japan's Economic Growth/Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change

    Q. I thought it was one each. [Laughter]
    Sir, Mr. President, the Prime Minister acknowledges that his reforms 
will slow the economic growth in Japan, at least in the short term. 
Wouldn't that threaten to drag down our economy, as well?
    And to you, Mr. Prime Minister, do you still think that President 
Bush's position on the Kyoto treaty is disappointing? And if so, why 
hasn't your country ratified it, or at least pledged to do so, without 
the United States?
    President Bush. Let me first answer. First of all, the Prime 
Minister recognizes that there needs to be deep and meaningful reform. I 
talked to him about our experiences in Texas in the eighties, where we 
acted--or the marketplace acted, we acted to remedy a situation in which 
we had bad loans, nonperforming assets, and there was some pain. But as 
a result of making the very difficult decisions, our economy was 
restructured and came back stronger than before.
    I support the Prime Minister--strongly support the Prime Minister's
