Transcript F.D.R. ON YALTA (Continued guild start on the road to a world of peace. There were two main purposes in this Crimean Conference: The firsl was to bring defeat to German) with the greatest possible speed and the small est possible loss of Allied men. Thai purpose is now being carried out in greal force. The German Army, the German people, are feeling the ever-increasing might of our fighting men anel of the .Allied armies: and every hour gives its added pride in the heroic advance of our troops in Germany on German soil toward a meeting wilh lhe gallant lied army. The second purpose was lo continue to build lln- foundation for an international accord lhat would bring order emd security after the chaos of the war, that would give some assurance of last- ing peace among lhe nations of the world. Toward lhat goal a tremendous stride was made. At Teheran a little over a Men ago there were long-range tniliteir\ plans laid by the chiefs of staff of the three mosl powerful nalions. Among the civilian leaders eil Teheran, however, at lhal time there were only exchanges of views and expressions of opinion. No political arrangements wen- made and none were attempted. At lhe Crimean ('.(inference, however, the time had come for getting down tn specific case's in the political field. There was on all sides at this conference an enthusiastic effort to reach em agreement. Since the lime of Teheran, a year ago, there had developed among all of ns whal shall I call it? —a greater facility in negotiating with each other that augurs well for the peace of the world; we know each other better. I lum- never for an instant wavered in my belief that an agreement to insure world peace and security can be reached. There were a number of things lltell we eliel that were concrete, lhal were definite: for instance, the lapse of lime between Teheran anel Yalta without eon- f.-ii-iict's ,,i representatives, of civilian representatives of lhe three major powers, bets proved to be too long fourteen months. During thai long period local problems were permitted In become acute in places like Poland. Greece, Italy, eiml Yugoslavia. Therefore, wc decided al i alta lhal even if circumstances metelc it impossible fur the heads eif tbe' three governments to meet more often in the fulure. we would make sure lhat there would be more frequent personal contacts for exchange of views between the Secretaries of State and the foreign ministers of these three powers. Page 56 from Page 4) We arranged for periodic meetings at intervals of three or four months. I feel very confidenl thai under ibis arrangement there will be no recurrences of the incidents which this winter disturbed the friends of world-wide cooperation emd collaboration. When we met at Yalta, in addition lo laving mil strategic and tactical plans for the complete eunl final military victim- over Germany, there were other problems of vital political consequence. For instance, firsl there wets the problem of the occupation and control of Germany after victory, the complete destruction of her mililarv power, and lhe assurance that neither nazism nor Prussian militarism could again be revived in threaten the peace and civiliza- lii.n ..f the world. | Applause. ] Secondly, again for example, there was lhe settlement of the few difference's that remained among us with respeel in the International Security Organization after the Dumbarton Oaks Conference. \s you remember, at that time and afterwards, I seiiel we had agreed 90 per cent. That is a pretty good percentage. I Ibink the oilier li) per '.ui was ironed onl al Yalta. Thirdly, there we're ihe- general political and economic problems common to all of the areas lhat would be in the future, or which have been, liberated from lhe Nazi yoke. We over here find it very difficult lo understand lhe rami- fications nf ni,iii\ nf these problems in foreign lands, bul wc eire trying to. Fourth, there welt' the special problems created by Poland and ^ ugoslavia. Days were spent in discussing these momentous matters, and we argued freely and frankly across lhe table. lint ai the etui, on every point, unanimous agreemenl was reached. And. more im- potleinl even than the agreement of words. I maj sety. wc achieved a unity of thought and a way of gelling along together. | Applause. | Wc know, of course, that il wets Hitler's hope etnel the German war lords' hope that we would not etgrce that some slight crack might appear in the solid wall of Allied unity, a crack lhal would give him and his fellow gangsters one last hope of escaping their just doom. That is the objective for which hi- propaganda machine has been working for many months. Hui Hitler has failed. [Applause.] Never before have the major Allies been more closely united- nol only in their wen aims, bul also in their peace aims. And they are determined to continue lo be united, lo be united with each other -anil wilh all peace-loving nations—so lhal lhe ideal of lasting peace will become a rceditv. The Soviel. Ihe British, and I nited Stales Chiefs of Sleiff held daily meetings with each oihcr. They conferred frequently with Marshal Sieilin. Prime Minister Churchill, and wilh me on the problem of coordinating tin- strategic emd tactical efforts of the Allied powers, Thev completed their plans for the final knockout blows to Germany. \l the lime of lhe Teheran Conference, the 11 its-si nn front, for instance, was removed so far from lhe American and British fronts that, while certain ss Pti°"> President tells Congress about Yalta meeting March 1. 1945.
