1. Wide, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shakes hands with Henry Kissinger on stage at State Department anniversary celebration
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Henry Kissinger, former US Secretary of State:
"When I came here, came to the United States, I was 15 and as you can hear today I spoke no English then and so, I was kind of a refugee who had to earn a living. The idea of representing the United States as a foreign born who had to get adjusted to a new country, in fact it is true, it didn't occur to me. Then I had three and a half years in the Army and I left college at the age of 27. So, I didn't, I did not consider the idea of being a foreign service officer and it wouldn't have been the right thing for me to do, to go abroad when a big challenge I had was to understand the role of America in the world by studying history. I had no fixed idea of becoming a governmental ... of serving the government at that time. I had the idea of, I wanted to do, when you come as a refugee, living as a discriminated minority, in very difficult circumstances, the importance of the United States is almost bred into you. And when I came later to Harvard and I heard people talk about totalitarian systems evolving in this country, if you lived in a totalitarian system the absurdity of this became pointed. So, I always wanted to serve the United States in some way, but I had specific idea how to do it, for if you look at my activities, for a very long time and it took a series of unbelievable accidents to put me into a position where President (Richard) Nixon appointed me."
