No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Do not hide behind utopian logic which says that until we have the perfect security environment, nuclear disarmament cannot proceed. This is old-think. This is the mentality of the Cold War era. We must face the realities of the 21st century. The Conference on Disarmament can be a driving force for building a safer world and a better future.
At the Imperial Conference on December 1, it was decided to make war against England and the United States.
