    HE SAID: "CULTURE, SCIENCE, PROGRESS -- THESE ARE WHAT IN OUR ERA SHOULD JUSTIFY NATIONAL AMBITION INSTEAD OF FORMER DREAMS OF CONQUEST OR DOMINATION.

    "IT IS FOR THIS THAT THE PEOPLES SHOULD MEET AND FROM WHICH MODERN CIVILISATION FLOWS. IT IS FOR THIS GOAL THAT THE NEW ALLIANCE OF RUSSIA AND FRANCE CAN BE SEALED," HE SAID.
