ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the French stand regarding the European and German questions discussed at the Brussels conference, held in Brussels, Belgium. The French again have refused to give a clear-cut decision on Economic Development Commission (EDC). Real subject of the debate in the French National Assembly was how to make an urgently necessary contribution to world peace. The ultimate decision was less about how France is to take her place in some form of European army than about how Germany was to keep a place among the Western nations of the free world. Both questions, despite the efforts of Pierre Mend�s-France, member of French Free Forces, are left unanswered. Chancellor of Federal republic of Germany, Konrad Adenauer's position is steadily growing less strong. The first question to be decided by the debate in the French Assembly directly and personally concerned Adenauer's immediate past as well as his future. Mend�s-France said before the Brussels conference, at the conference and afterward that such a majority didn't exist and couldn't be made under present circumstances.
