'Whatever happens, Berlin will remain free'
In July 1978, 150,000 Berliners lined the pavements of West Berlin's Kurfürstendamm to see US President Jimmy Carter and German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt. When Carter arrived at Berlin's Tempelhof airport he said "whatever happens, Berlin will remain free." On a personal level, Carter and Schmidt didn't get on at all. Both leaders made disparaging remarks about each other after the visit.
