Notes, topics or text 

"I did not, before, suggest the necessary steps for Anglo-Soviet friendship because there seemed to me no chance that such steps would be taken. However, in view of your letter, I enclose herewith what I consider the necessary steps."

"If good relations are to be restored between Britain and the Soviet Government both sides will have to take rather drastic steps. I suggest the following: 1) Russia should withdraw all armed forces from the satellite countries of Eastern Europe, including Eastern Germany; 2) Germany should be unified and neutralized, and should not continue as a member of NATO; 3) both Russia and the Western Powers should abstain from all attempts to exercise influence in the Middle East; 4) nuclear test explosions should be renounced on both sides by agreement; 5) a serious attempt should be made to bring about a measure of disarmament on both sides, not only in nuclear weapons, but in all kinds of armaments...."
