"The North Atlantic Treaty is an instrument of peace," the President said in obvious reply to Soviet anfi- NATO propaganda. He continued: "All the lies and smears of hostile propaganda cannot conceal the fact that our nations have entered this treaty to pre-serve peace- The people of our countries dcn't want to fight another war; they want to prevent one and they have gone about it in Die only way that can possibly work; that is. by banding together for mutual self-protection. "In the past, many of the North Atlantic Treaty countries at one time or another have tried to find peace through neutrality and isolation. It didn't work. It never will work."
