Secretary Dulles said that he believed there was a misunderstanding of the intention of this paragraph. It was not the objective of this paragraph or this paper to encourage any level of trade with the Soviet satellites. The objective was simply to put the U.S. Government in a position to be able to make offers of surplus materials to the satellite governments which these governments could not reject without simultaneously putting pressure on the USSR to match the U.S. offer of surplus food. Moreover, no satellite government would be able to accept any U.S. offer of surplus food without affording the United States increased political influence in that satellite. Essentially, therefore, this was not a matter of trade, but rather of economic and political warfare. The United States simply must be in a position to be able to make these gestures and feints in its duelling with the Communists. Thus, for example, when we made our offer recently to the people of Poznan, we never seriously thought that we would be able to provide food to these people. Our main idea was to embarrass the Government of Communist Poland. In concluding, Secretary Dulles once again repeated that he was not now seeking any new authority, along the lines suggested by paragraph 25, from the Congress at this time.
