Transcript problem which has decisive significance for the security of the nations. In this connection it is necessary to point out that in the course of the discussions on disarmament the participants of the conference made proposals which indubitably will be studied in tin- course of further negotiations on this problem and will serve to achieve the necessary agreemenl between them. The Soviet government states that in the further consideration of Ibis disarmament problem it will make the utmost efforts to find a solution to the problem, answering the yearning of the nations. There was an exchange of opinions between us on the German problem. Various approaches lo this problem were expressed. The United States. British and French delegations, speaking of lhe reunion of Germany, based llieir arguments on the assumption thai Wesl Germany, which is In he remilitarized in accordance with the Paris agreements—and later a reunited Germany—must enter into the hie..- of the North Atlantic pact and the Western European Union. The Soviet government, therefore, which is consequenlially seeking the creation of German national unity, has drawn attention even before the ratification of the Paris agreements to the facl that the coming into force of these agreements would create difficulties for talks on the German problem and make pointless any discussion on the reunification of Germany. The Soviet government believes that il is necessary to take the facts into consideration. War in Europe ended ten years ago. Since that time two Germanics have appeared—the German Democratic Republic and the German Federal Republic— each with its own economic and social structure. Besides this, in accordance wilh the Paris agreements, the German Federal Republic entered upon thc path of re- 'uiliteirization and was included in the military grouping of the Western powers. As far as the German Democratic Republic is concerned, in view of thc Conclusion of lhe Paris pacts, it has 'liken the decision lo participate in the Warsaw Treaty Organization. It is clear that in such conditions wc cannol argue the question of the mechanical union of ibe two parts of Germany—the German Democrat ie Republic and the Federal Republic—because 'His would be an unrealistic approach 'o the problem. The Soviet Union was and remains a warm supporter of the reunion of Ger- •oany as a peace-loving, democratic ttate. We are deeply convinced that the German problem must not be discussed withoui the participation of the representatives of the German Democratic and the German Federal Republics. In the situation which developed in Europe, the only real approach to the reunion of Germany appears to be by way of a coordinated effort of the four powers, and also of the German people, which is directed toward a relaxation of tension in Europe and the establishment of confidence between the stales. Just this goal would be served besl by the creation of a European collective security system, with the participation of both parts of Germany on a basis of equality until reunion is achieved. Since this would lead to tbe strengthening of peace in Europe and create' an obstacle to the growth of German militarism, the obstacles al presenl in the path of a German reunion could be done away with. On the other hand, for thc reunion of Germany from the point of view of her internal conditions, the rapprochement between her two parts is of the utmost importance. The Soviet delegation regrets that further attention was not given lo the problems of Asia and the Far East at our conference. Among others, such questions as the restoration of the legal rights of tbe Chinese People's Republic in the United Nations organization, the regulation of the situation in the Formosa region on the basis of the recognition of the indisputable rights of the Chinese people. the execution of the Geneva agreements on Indochina and other problems will not tolerate postponement. We can never escape these problems. They must be solved in Ihe interests of peace and security in Asia and the Far East, in the interests of world peace. The Geneva conference opened the road for the further treatment and solu tion of the matured international problems. We also made an important decision about the necessity for widening contacts between East and West and about the development and strengthening of economic and cultural ties between our states. Vi ith these decisions we have laid the basis for a wider cooperation between our countries. The Soviet government, on its part, is ready by all means to facilitate such cooperation. It expects that other par- ticipants in this conference will travel along this road, which serves the interests of our peoples and the interests of world peace. We all recognize the importance of the decisions made here. They are the beginning of a new stage in the relations between our countries. They will facilitate the strengthening of confidence between us. between our peoples. These decisions will have a positive meaning also for other countries and for the strengthening of world peace. The warmest vcarning of all nations is the vearning for peace. The Soviet government will make the requisite efforts to translate into action our decisions which are directed toward the relaxation of international tension and lhe strengthening of world peace. This requires the patient and loyal examination of those problems which we must still discuss and resolve. But if this same spirit of cooperation is shown by all of us, as it has been shown at the Geneva conference, this will be a reliable pledge that the noble goal of the maintenance of peace will be achieved and the peoples will be able to look calmly toward the morrow.
