Today there comes a message from Margaret Thatcher about the outcome of her talks with President Bush in Bermuda. The most important information that it contains is the suggestion of a NATO summit ‘soon” to discuss all-German full membership of the North Atlantic Alliance, the American conventional and nuclear presence in Europe, and the future strategy of the alliance. Mitterrand and Bush have also spoken of a summit “before the end of the year” at their meeting at Key Largo in Florida. Thatcher is convinced that Moscow will agree in the end to the NATO membership of a united Germany and also to its full participation in the integrated military structure of the alliance. Bush is of this opinion too. We understand this information as a gesture of good will.
