Greetings to my esteemed friends and thank you for attending today.

I won't waste your time - I am here to discuss the issue of complete Austrian independence. It is well regarded that we were the first victim of Nazi oppression and my nation thanks you for your correct categorizing of this and treating us well. However, it has now been five years since the war has finished, and our nation must now move on. While you have been gracious and correct in gradually giving the Austrian government more autonomy the time for the final step has come. The occupation of our nation can no longer be considered necessary and it is very expensive for us to sustain it. We ask that we can develop a framework for the complete independence and autonomy of Austria to once again become it's own nation and for all foreign troops to withdraw from the nation (with the exception of any subsequent agreements). We hope that you will agree with our proposals.

Thank you,
Tomas Gunter

The Trucial States have been suppportive of the Austrian Independence movement, we would like to send a delegation but sadly, we are busy with our own Independence movement. May you have luck in your endeavors.

Thank you to the French and American governments - hopefully we will find a solution quickly.

We very much appreciate the Trucial States sentiments, and wish them luck in their future endeavours.

The Czechoslovakian government hopes that Austria gets full independence, and we hope that we may cooperate in the future.

We thank all the delegates for their speedy arrival. Now down to business. We would just like to make our proposals straight away. We propose that:

1) All of the occupying nations and their military presences leave Austria by the end of 1950 or at an agreed date
2) The occupying nations turn over all Austrian economic assets back to the government of Austria.
3) The occupying nations permanently forfeit their current vetoes on any Austrian government decision

These points are the starting point for negotiations, we hope that you may find these agreeable.

We would also like to see a fourth topic in which the Austrian military is discussed?

There would have to be assurances of regional security. The United States doesn't wish to create a power vacuum by withdrawing so rapidly.

The Austrian military can certainly be discussed. Is there anything in particular the French delegate had in mind?

Would the United States prefer that Austria held a general election with the government to take office the day before allied forces leave the country? This way there can be a monitored democratic process.

Would the French delegate be satisfied if, before the election process the Constitution is modified and therefore also voted upon, and included in it this clause:

QUOTE
x.x The nation of Austria is not permitted to declare war upon any nation except in an act of self-defence.
i) Self-defence is defined as being the recipient of an act of aggression against Austria by a foreign force.
ii) If a the government is forced to declare war, the military may not advance beyond the borders of Austria
