The AC/34 chronological series contains the documents of the Working Group on Trends of Soviet Policy(1) . The Working Group was set up by the Council at its 8 October 1952 meeting, and tasked with drafting a report, for the next ministerial session of the Council, on the line of Soviet foreign policy (C-R(52)24, item 5) - which had previously been considered by the Political Working Group(2). To this end national experts met and drafted the document on the basis of the information and views communicated to the International Staff Political Affairs Division by the delegations (C-R(52)24). Other reports followed for the periods April 1953 to December 1953, December 1953 to April 1954, April 1954 to November 1954 and December 1954 to April 1955. The Working Group operated from 29 October 1952 until 19 November 1956. Its work was taken over by the Political Committee(3) which was created in January 1957.
