ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Franco-German relations. The postponement of the London, England conference which the British Government suggested as a means of exploring rapidly the post-EDC possibilities in Western Europe is unfortunate, if only because a "dialogue" the leaders between Konrad Adenauer and Pierre Mendes-France remains a necessary step toward improving Franco-German relations. Adenauer does not like Mendes-France. This much was plain almost from the moment the Frenchman took office, or at least since the tough, iron-fist-on-the-table speech "demanding" before the Geneva conference that EDC be ratified or else. Mendes-France has many enemies. It is conceivable that, though they disagree on almost everything else, they may get together on destroying him.
