NotesWhile the Moscow Conference remained locked in a clinch about German and Austrian treaties, Bevin took the opportunity to press his offer of a year before to extend the Anglo-Russian treaty of alliance to fifty years. The Soviet Government here personified in Vishinsky, were willing, upon condition Britain should not join any hostile bloc. The current Moscow attitude implied that this would mean in effect ditching the US and joining the Soviet bloc. Bevin drew back embarrased.
