"We shall continue to make concrete and realistic proposals for disarmament for the solutions of the problems of Germany, for European security and for co-operation in the newly opening realm of outer space. Although we shall always avoid substitution, substituting illusion for reality, we shall continue to strive for a more general and far reaching, but always practical settlement of difference with the Soviets. The need for everlasting peace with justice is the abandonment of the Communist purpose of World domination. Those who respect the dignity of man will not flinch before the magnitude of the task, rather they prove once again that greatness of of spirit and love of liberty will overcome the forces atheistic materialism and coercion and give to all nations under God the blessings of security along with a just and durable peace."
