Gewaltverzicht

Decision to not use violence.

From Willy Brandt’s 28 Oct 1969 address to the Bundestag:

“It is this government’s firm conviction that the policy of abstaining from violence, a policy that respects our partners’ territorial integrity, is a crucial contribution toward a détente in Europe. Abstentions from violence would create an atmosphere that enables further steps.

“This objective is also served by joint efforts to promote trade, technical cooperation and cultural exchange.”
