I therefore make the following proposal: The governments principally involved, to the extent permitted by elementary prudence, to begin now & continue to make joint contributions from their stockpiles of normal uranium & fissionable materials to an international atomic energy agency. We would expect that such an agency would be set up under the aegis of the United Nations. The ratios of contributions, the procedures and other details would properly be within the scope of the "private conversations" I referred to earlier. The United States is prepared to undertake these explorations... 05:04:56 “The Atomic Energy Agency could be made responsible for the impounding, storage & protection of the contributed fissionable & other materials. The ingenuity of our scientists will provide special safe conditions under which such a bank of fissionable material can be made essentially immune to surprise seizure. The more important responsibility of this atomic energy agency would be to devise methods whereby this fissionable material would be allocated to serve the peaceful pursuits of mankind. Experts would be mobilized to apply atomic energy to the needs of agriculture, medicine & other peaceful activities. A special purpose would be to provide abundant electrical energy in the power-starved areas of the world. Thus the contributing Powers would be dedicating some of their strength to serve the needs rather than the fears of mankind. The United States would be more than willing - it would be proud to take up with others "principally involved" the development of plans whereby such peaceful use of atomic energy would be expedited. 05:06:12 “Of those “principally involved” the Soviet Union must, of course, be one. I would be prepared to submit to the Congress of the United States, & w/ every expectation of approval, any such plan that would first encourage world-wide investigation into the most effective peacetime uses of fissionable material, & w/ the certainty that the investigators had all the material needed for the conducting of all experiments that were appropriate; second, begin to diminish the potential destructive power of the world's atomic stockpiles; third, allow all peoples of all nations to see that, in this enlightened age, the great Powers of the earth, both of the East & of the West, are interested in human aspirations first rather than in building up the armaments of war; fourth, open up a new channel for peaceful discussion & initiate at least a new approach to the many difficult problems that must be solved in both private & public conversations if the world is to shake off the inertia imposed by fear & is to make positive progress towards peace. 05:07:34 “Against the dark background of the atomic bomb, the United States does not wish merely to present strength, but also the desire & the hope for peace. The coming months will be fraught with fateful decisions. In this Assembly, in the capitals and military headquarters of the world... 05:08:37 I again thank the delegates for the great honor they have done me....Thank you. Pan applauding General Assembly members... 05:09:38 Madam President Vijaya Pandit: The assembly will meet tomorrow at 3 pm. Meeting is adjourned.
