ABSTRACT
The article emphasizes on the need to strengthen Western unity, Atlantic solidarity and the European Community. The crisis in North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and in the European Communities has destroyed the chance for a Western diplomatic offensive following the firm reaction of the United States against the establishment of Soviet Unions's atomic weapons in Cuba. The European Community must strengthen its inner structure, deal with the problems involved in enlarging its area and regulate its relationship to other countries and regions. If Europe wants to bring the alliance with the United States into a better equilibrium it has to unite and it has to accept Great Britain, for only so can it approach equality in partnership. Then it also will play something more like an equal role in the atomic field. The interdependence of Europe and the United States will remain, but decision-making would be by a sort of two-key system, in which the ability to make a decision remains credible and yet gives the two partners equal rights of co-decision.
