U strict international control in order that a decision on prohibi tion of the atomic weapon and on cessation of production of atomic weapons and on the use of already manufactured atomic bombs ex clusively for peaceful purposes should be carried out conscienti ously and with all exactitude Stalin continued American leaders also speak of control but their control is derived not from stopping
