Resurrection the Security pact talk at this time caused considerable surprises in american Headquarters because it was assumed that this phase the conference discussions was finished. Just How the matter was revived was still surrounded with considerable mystery but in Many quarters the impression prevailed that great Britain May have offered Security assurances to France in some form other.
