    MR. ADLAI STEVENSON, THE UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS, APPEALED IN AN ADDRESS?

  • Description


    TRANSCRIPT: MR. STEVENSON: "MR. CHAIRMAN, THE UNITED STATES PROPOSAL IS INDEED A RADICAL PROPOSAL. IT CALLS FOR LARGE REDUCTIONS OF ARMAMENTS, EVEN IN THE FIRST STATES, OF BOTH CONVENTIONAL AND NUCLEAR ARMAMENT. IT CALLS FOR AN END TO THE PRODUCTION OF FISSIONABLE MATERIALS FOR WEAPONS PURPOSES, AND FOR THE TRANSFER OF SUCH MATERIALS FROM EXISTING STOCKS TO NON WEAPONS USE. IN SHORT, THE PROGRAMME PROPOSED BY THE UNITED STATES CALLS FOR THE TOTAL ELIMINATION OF NATIONAL CAPACITY TO MAKE INTERNATIONAL WARFARE, AND TO ENSURE THAT ALL OF THESE STEPS ARE ACTUALLY CARRIED OUT BY EACH SIDE, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. THE PLAN CALLS FOR THE CREATION OF AN INTERNATIONAL DISARMAMENT ORGANISATION WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE UNITED NATIONS".
