Thev will join together, during tin- temporary period of instability etfle-r lf>siilitie-. to help lhe people of einv liberated area, or of anv former satellite state, to solve- their own problems through fit inlv established democratic processes, I'hi'v will endeavor to see lo ii llteti interim governments lln- people who 'einv ten the interim governments between the occupation eef Germany and the eleiv of true independence will be ■is representative as peissible of eill democratic elements in the population, ami thai free elections are held ei- sexen eis possible thereafter.

I should s;iv that was ein argument based upon common sense. One outstanding example of joinl action bv the three major Allied powers was the' solution reached on Poland. The whole Polish question wets ;t potential source of trouble in postwar Europe, and vve came lo ihe Conference- determined to find et common ground for i|s seelulion. We eliel.
