The agreement calls on the signatories to “deliberate together on the measures necessary to fulfil the common responsibilities defined in this declaration.” During the discussions on Yalta, Molotov added language that weakens the implication of the application of the declaration.  The three heads of state and government ratified the agreement of the European Advisory Commission, which defined the limits of post-war zones of occupation for Germany: three zones of occupation, one for each of the three main allies. They also agreed to give France an area of occupation that was cut off from the areas of the United States and the United Kingdom, although De Gaulle later refused to accept that the French zone be defined by borders defined in his absence. De Gaulle therefore ordered the French forces to occupy Stuttgart in addition to the previously agreed areas, which included the French zone of occupation. He only withdrew when he threatened to suspend most of the U.S. economic supply.  Churchill, at Yalta, argued at the time that the French must necessarily be full members of the proposed Allied Control Council for Germany. Stalin opposed it until Roosevelt supported Churchill`s position, but Stalin insisted that the French would not be admitted to the Allied Reparation Commission, which was to be set up in Moscow, and yielded only to the Potsdam conference. Churchill defended his action in Yalta in a three-day parliamentary debate that began on 27 February and ended with a vote of confidence. During the debate, many MPs criticized Churchill and expressed deep reservations about Yalta and his support for Poland, 25 of whom drafted an amendment to protest the agreement.
 The Prime Minister of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and the President of the United States of America have worked together in the common interest of the peoples of their countries and of liberated Europe. Together, they agree to resolve by democratic means, by democratic means, the policies of their three governments in support of the peoples freed from the domination of Nazi Germany and the peoples of the former satellite states of the Axis of Europe, during the temporary period of instability in liberated Europe. At that time, the Soviet army occupied Poland entirely and held much of Eastern Europe with a military power three times greater than the Allied forces of the West. [Citation required] The declaration of the liberated Europe has little to do to dispel the sphere of influence of the agreements that had been incorporated into ceasefire agreements. The Yalta conference took place in an atmosphere of optimism and tension. The empires of Germany and Japan fell to the brink of collapse. Roosevelt and Churchill hoped to establish governments in these areas that would protect democracy and human rights, but they could not ignore Stalin`s military might. The Soviet leader was determined to maintain Eastern Europe and extend his power elsewhere. The fates of hundreds of millions in Europe and Asia would rest on each Agreement of the Great Three in Yalta. With regard to Poland, the yalta report adds that the provisional government should “be obliged to hold free and unimpeded elections as soon as possible, on the basis of universal suffrage and secret ballot”.
 The agreement could not mask the importance of adhering to the short-term pro-Soviet control of the Lublin government and eliminating the language that requires supervised elections.  Allied leaders arrived in Yalta because they knew that an Allies` victory in Europe was almost inevitable, but that they were less convinced that the Pacific War was approaching.
