Telegram from Jean Monnet to Robert Schuman (14 September 1950)

On 14 September 1950, as negotiations are held on the Schuman Plan, Jean Monnet sends a telegram to Robert Schuman, French Foreign Minister, in which he describes a change in the attitude of the German delegation, which, fearing that German rearmament will no longer take place within a European framework but in a purely national context, lays down new conditions for the establishment of a common market in coal and steel.
