ID: 195700005573

The importance of the Franco-Belgian discussions was acknowledged in 1957 in a letter from Sengier to Halban: "Needless to say, these conversations impressed me very much, and drew my most serious attention to the importance of uranium as a potential material for bombs, and the danger of uranium ores falling into the hands of a possible enemy.... That is the reason why I shipped from Africa to America, a stock of rich ore and placed it at the disposal of our Allies". (20030612)
