ABSTRACT
The article presents some political implications of the State Department's Committee on the International Control of Atomic Energy report. It is noted that even if the Acheson Report does not clearly specify that the ADA maintain a stockpile of atomic bombs, it is fair in pointing that no individual state shall possess atomic bombs. The mere possession of these destructive weapons can cause chaos in international relations, and can forward instability of judgment in diplomatic negotiations. Moreover, the possession of permitted stockpile of atomic bombs along the premises of the Yale scheme modifies the current balance of power.
