    TRANSCRIPT



    "WEE BELIEVE THAT WE ARE ALL FAVOUR OF THE NON-PROLIFERATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS, AND WE SAY, IN ALL DETERMINATION, THAT THE SPREADING OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS SHOULD BE, MUST BE, BANNED; AND WE TAKE THIS POSITION, NOT BECAUSE WE'RE AFRAID THAT THERE MIGHT APPEAR IN THE WORLD YET ANOTHER COMPETITOR IN THE FIELD OF NUCLEAR ARMS - WE DO THIS BECAUSE WE ARE CONVINCED THAT MANKIND MUST DO AWAY WITH NUCLEAR ARMS IF HE IS TO CONTINUE TO EXIST AND SURVIVE. AS TO THE QUESTION THAT RELATED TO THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY, I WISH TO SAY THAT WHETHER SHE WANTS TO OR NOT, SHE WILL HAVE TO SIGN THAT TREATY BECAUSE WE HAVE NO INTENTION OF EVER ALLOWING THE FEDERAL GERMAN REPUBLIC TO GAIN ACCESS TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS, AND WE SHALL , IN ALL DETERMINATION, TAKE EVERY POSSIBLE RESOLUTE STEP TO PREVENT HER FROM ACHIEVING ACCESS TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS. NOW, WHAT WOULD WE LIKE TO SEE WEST GERMANY DO IN THIS FIELD. WE PROCEED FROM THE FACT THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN RESULTS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR AND THESE RESULTS MUST NOT BE VIOLATED. ALL IDEAS OF REVENGE MUST BE COMPLETELY DONE AWAY WITH, AND THIS EVERYONE SHOULD BE QUITE CONSCIOUS OF. THERE CAN BE NO DIVISION OF EXISTING BOUNDARIES, AND IN SHORT, GERMANY SHOULD GIVE UP ALL REVENGEFUL THOUGHTS. IT SHOULD GIVE UP ALL HOPES OF EVER ACQUIRING NUCLEAR WEAPONS, AND IT SHOULD RECOGNISE THE INVIOLABILITY OF THE EXISTING BOUNDARIES. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT CONTINUATION TO THE MESSAGE OF TENSIONS, NOT IN EUROPE, BUT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD."
