added he hopes the soviet un ion will agree that the nations that fought the world have a chance to make the peace Byrnes strongly emphasized his Belief that this means all allied nations directly involved not just Russia Britain and the United States At different points in his ad dress he put it in the following ways At Berlin it certainly was never intended that the 3 powers present or the 5 powers consti tuting the council of foreign min isters should take unto them selves the making of the final Peace At London the American dele gation took the position that In an interdependent

peace to its allies Byrnes disclosed that one big difference at London was over recognition of the present Bulgar ian and Hungarian governments Because the United States and Britain have not yet recognized those regimes Russia apparently believes they object to the friend liness of the 2 Balkan govern ments for the soviet Union Byrnes said Byrnes made it plain too that another stumbling block was Rus sias insistence on excluding France and China from discus sions of peace treaties for coun tries with which they had not been at war Russian demands that France and China have no part in the
