This article talks about issues related to Atlantic relationships and nuclear problems. Of the various attempts to find practical solutions to these problems, the two particularly worth mentioning are the offer of the U.S. to commit several Polaris submarines to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Command and the proposals made at the Bahamas meeting. It is always difficult to summarize without running the risk of distorting. However, it is probably fair to say that the U.S. Government sees no need for national nuclear forces in Europe and that it believes there is a danger of such forces being used in case of war in a way that might precipitate rather than ward off a nuclear catastrophe. Yet it recognizes two facts: namely, that two European nations have embarked on the national production of atomic weapons; and that there is a growing desire in Europe to share in the responsibility for deciding whether such weapons should be used or not. In consequence, it is felt that the U.S. could support the building of a multilateral nuclear force fully integrated into the American force, and that it could help in the procurement of national delivery systems under certain conditions.
