NotesThe Foreign Ministers still disagreed about Germany. Marshall (US) and Bevin (Britain) wanted to go slow on reparations and build up German "peace" industry so that the Western zones could pay their way. Bidault (France) thought it would be difficult to separate "war" industry from "peace" industry, and feared a revival of Germany's power to make war. Molotov (USSR) wanted more bulk removals of industrial plant, current output and foreign assets as reparations. [Caption from Low's Cartoon History 1945-1953 by David Low]
