  • Description


    TRANSCRIPT: MR. GROMYKO: "PERHAPS THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO FEAR THAT THE WORST THING IS THAT SITUATIONS THAT BORDER ON THE PROVOCATIONS MAY CREATE MORE FAVOURABLE CONDITIONS FOR THOSE THAT OPPOSE PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT IN GERMANY. BUT THIS IS A GROSS ERROR, THE PEACE TREATY WILL BE SIGNED AND THE QUESTION IS NOT AT ALL POSED IN THIS MANNER WHETHER THE TREATY IS GOING TO BE SIGNED OR NOT. THE TREATY MUST BE SIGNED, INDISPENSABLY. BUT THE OTHER QUESTION THAT EXISTS IS THE FOLLOWING. WHETHER IT BE SIGNED ON THE BASIS OF AN AGREEMENT, AS IT HAS BECOME THE CUSTOM TO DEFINE, BETWEEN EAST AND WEST, AN AGREEMENT ON CERTAIN MATTERS WHICH DO BASIC FOR THE CONCLUSION OF A GERMAN PEACE TREATY. OR WHETHER IT SHOULD BE SIGNED WITHOUT ANY SUCH AGREEMENT AS IS SOMETIMES REFERRED TO, UNILATERALLY BY THE SOVIET UNION AND SOME OTHER POWERS.
