Each of the four proposed Security pacts or mainly limed at easing the dispute Over Germany. 2. All but Franco proposer relaxing Trade communications barriers Between East West blocs. 3. All spoke of reducing the arms Load. The big feature of the Day was he warm expression of Goodwill the United states Russia indicating a friendlier cd in nation of world problems than at any time during the 10 bitter years which have intervened since he Heads of these two Powers last met in Potsdam in 1945. When Eisenhower said the american people want to be friends Wilh the soviet proposed lifting artificial barriers Bulgarin responded we Are in Complete agreement with thai since the lifting of the said barriers would meet both the National interests of the soviet american Peoples the inter ests of Universal peace. As was expected the russian remier came out with a wider Range of problems to discuss than were raised by the Western Mcm cars. The westerners steered Clear of talk about the far Kast. Bulgarin Lau cd it boldly in saying the settlement of the situation Nasia the far East including he Taiwan Formosa area on the basis of recognition of the undisputed right of China to this Island would be of signal importance for the amelioration of the International situation As a whole. In this connection i find it Essary to recall the Well known de sire of the government of the peo Ween the United states the eople s Republic of China. Note should also lie made of he important question of reestablishing the lawful rights of the Peoples Republic of China in the United China Formosa Are Well worn topics of debate Between East West. The West had fore seen the possibility that Russia would raise the questions but few saw much Chance of accomplish ment in this Field. But some be Hind the scenes talks seemed Poi Siulc. While All the others talked of easing tension Bulgarin said Al ready a certain relaxation of ten Sion in International relations is in the three Western leaders based their proposals for Security pacts on settlement of the German ques Tion. Solution of this question they agreed must come first. Russia disagreed. Hul Ganin said disarmament Security agreements should first. In proposing the program of disarmament of establishing a system of european he said. The soviet government proceeds from the premise that the easing of tension in International relations the creation of in effective system of Security in Europe would largely facilitate the settlement of the German problem would bring about the Neces sary prerequisites for the unification of Germany on a peaceful democratic preceding that he proved a big order for the westerners to Swallow. That would be a two stage Security agreement that would Lead to withdrawal of All american forces from Europe destruction of the North Atlantic treaty organization limitation of the German army to i package size Job of about soldiers. A Quick look at this from the Western standpoint seemed to open Little basis for agreement but on anole or russian proposal there seemed some Prospect of an Over lapping of Eastern Western ideas.
