Moscow Declaration

   The outcome of a conference among Cordell Hull, the American secretary of state; British Foreign Minister Anthony Eden; and V. N. Molotov, the Soviet foreign minister for the Soviet Union, the Moscow Declaration of 1 November 1943 called for liberation of Austria from Nazi rule and its reestablishment as a sovereign country. It was the first clear indication of Allied intentions toward Austria. Although the statement acknowledged that Austria had been a genuine victim of Nazi aggression, it also reminded Austrians that they were cooperating with Adolf Hitler and would have to actively fight for their national independence.
