On 14 February 1957, Christian Calmes, Secretary General of the Intergovernmental Conference on the Common Market and Euratom, travels to Bonn to meet Heinrich von Brentano, German Foreign Minister. The discussion focuses on, in particular, the seat of and the allocation of posts in the future institutions of the European Economic Community (EEC) and of the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom). Ultimately, Calmes forwards a memorandum to von Brentano in which he argues in favour of the establishment of a single Council of Ministers for the three Communities.
