We believe in the eventual return of sovereign rights & self-government to all peoples who have been deprived of them by force. We shall approve no territorial changes in any friendly part of the world unless they accord w/ the freely expressed wishes of the people concerned. We shall refuse to recognize any government, imposed upon any nation, by the force of any foreign power. In some cases it may be impossible to prevent forceful imposition of such a government but the United States will not recognize any such government.” Re atomic bomb: “We must find the answers to the problems created by the release of atomic energy; the possession in our hands of this new power of destruction we regard as a sacred trust. Because of our love of Peace the thoughtful people of the world know that that trust will not be violated, that it will be faithfully executed.
