MOST IMMEDIATE SECRET
Council of Foreign Ministers You will note from Dominions Office telegrams Nos. 1834 and 1835  that both Bevin and Byrnes have come round to my contention that the European peace settlement should be treated as a whole at a conference including non European members of the United Nations who have actively contributed to the defeat of European members of the Axis.
This substantially meets the case we have been contending ...  as the inclusion of the European members of the United Nations proposed in Byrnes' resolution broadly tallies with the list of countries we have had in mind from the beginning who should be associated with the Dominions as participants with the Big Five in working out the peace settlements.
Despite Molotov's tactics, it looks as though our effort will be substantially successful.
