To the Minister President of the German Democratic Republic, Comrade Otto Grotewohl.
I ask the government of the German Demo-ocratic Republic and you personally, Comrade Minister President, to accept my thanks for your friendly greetings on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the liberation of the German people from the fascist tyranny.
I wish the German people and the government of the German Democratic Republic, success in the struggle for an united, independent, democratic and peace-loving Germany, for the immediate conclusion of a peace treaty and the departure of the occupying forces from Germany in the interests of Germany and of world peace.
("New Germany," Berlin Ed., No. 109, May, 1952)
