Terms Of The Yalta Agreement

With regard to Poland, Kanta`s report also states that “the provisional government should be obliged to hold free and unlimited elections as soon as possible on the basis of universal suffrage and secret ballot”. [18] The agreement could not mask the importance of short-term pro-Soviet government control of Lublin and eliminate language calling for supervised elections. [19] Allied leaders came to Woglichen, knowing that an Allied victory in Europe was virtually inevitable, but less convinced that the Pacific War was nearing its end. Recognizing that a victory over Japan might require a long-term struggle, the United States and Britain saw a great strategic advantage for Soviet participation in the Pacific theater.
