The Chairman of the Council of Peopled Commissars of the Soviet Union ( Stalin ) to President Roosevelt 43

[Translation]

I have received your message44 on the question of post-war economic collaboration. Undoubtedly, the questions touched upon in Mr. [Page 23] Hull’s note regarding international collaboration in the sphere of economics are of great importance and demand attention. I consider as quite expedient the establishment at the present time of a United Nations apparatus for the working out of these questions and also for the establishment of conditions and order of consideration of various problems of the international economic collaboration in accordance with the decisions of the Moscow and Teheran Conferences.
