United Nations are determined to make a peace which will banish the scourge of war

DECISIONS REACHED BY CHURCHILL, ROOSEVELT AND STALIN DURING THEIR FOUR-DAY CONFERENCE IN TEHERAN WERE ANNOUNCED LAST NIGHT IN THIS DECLARATION SIGNED BY THE THREE LEADERS:

“We, the President of the United States, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, and the Premier [missing word] the Soviet Union, have met these four days past [missing word] this the capital of our ally, Iran, and have [missing letters]aped and confirmed our common policy.

“We expressed our determination that our nations shall work together in war and in the peace that will follow.

“As to the war – our military staffs have joined in our round table discussions and we have concerted our plans for the destruction of the German forces. We have reached complete agreement as to the scope and timing of operations which will be undertaken from east, west and south.

“The common understanding which we have reached guarantees that victory will be ours.

“And as to peace, we are sure that our concord will make it an enduring peace. We recognise fully the supreme responsibility resting upon us and all the United Nations to make a peace which will command the good will of the overwhelming mass of peoples of the world, and banish the scourge and terror of war for many generations.

“With our diplomatic advisers we have surveyed the problems of the future. We shall seek the co-operation and active participation of all nations, large and small, whose peoples in heart and mind are dedicated as are our peoples to the elimination of tyranny and slavery, oppression and intolerance. We will welcome them as they may choose to come into a world family of democratic nations.

“No power on earth can prevent our destroying the German armies by land, their U-boats by sea and their war plants from the air.

“Our attack will be relentless and increasing.

“From these friendly conferences we look with confidence to the day when all the peoples of the world may live free lives untouched by tyranny and according to their varying desires and their own consciences.

“We came here with hope and determination. We leave here friends in fact, in spirit, and in purpose.”
