Notes, topics or text 

Re the situation in Berlin. "Ever since 1945, I have thought that Germany presented the most difficult problem.…" "The ideal solution ... would be the disarmament and neutralization of Germany under an international guarantee. I should, of course, prefer to see the disarmament not only German but universal, as Khrushchev has sometimes proposed. Short of some such measure, I do not see any hope of German reunification."

"If Germany remains divided into East and West, one Communist and the other not, tension would survive. On the other hand, it is difficult to imagine Russia surrendering East Germany, except as a result of defeat in war, and war would defeat us all."

"[Keep copy of this to use as a statement]".
