Central Europe

July 29, 1965

The 16th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 26-31 July, 1965 in The Hague, Holland:

The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom which, since its inception in 1915, has worked to make known and to abolish the causes of war: political, social and economic, and psychological; disturbed by increasing tension in Central Europe,

urges the Government to establish under the auspices of the United Nations, a demilitarized, disarmed and nuclear-free zone in Central Europe, to include East and West Germany, Poland and Czechoslovakia.  Such a measure would considerably reduce the tension between the German Federal Republic and the German Democratic Republic and would be regarded as an important first step towards total and universal disarmament.
