On 2 August 1945, the Potsdam Agreement, proclaimed at the end of the Potsdam Conference, agreed, among other things, on the first conditions under which the Allies of the Second World War were to govern Germany. A temporary German-Polish border, known as the Oder-Neisse Line, theoretically assigned most of Germany`s eastern provinces to Poland and the Soviet Union as part of this „provisional border“. The German population in these areas was either displaced or killed. These agreements were provisional and the agreement provided that the situation would be concluded by „a peace settlement for Germany, which shall be accepted by the German Government if an appropriate government was set up for this purpose“ (Potsdam Agreement 1.3.1). Parts of these agreements have been the subject of controversy from several sources, for example.B. Churchill`s comment on „the Polish goose too much to fill“ (by the German countries). The general „German question“ became one of the most important and decisive issues of the long-standing Cold War, and until the late 1980s little progress had been made in forming a single German government sufficient to reach a final agreement. This meant that Germany, in some ways (largely, but not only technically), was not violating full national sovereignty. :42-43 The treaty allows Germany to enter into and participate in alliances without foreign influence in its policy. All Soviet forces were to leave Germany by the end of 1994.
Before the Soviets withdrew, Germany only appealed to territorial defense units that were not integrated into the alliance`s structures. German troops in the rest of Germany were assigned to areas where Soviet troops were stationed. After the Soviet withdrawal, the Germans were able to freely deploy troops in these areas, with the exception of nuclear weapons. For the duration of the Soviet presence, Allied troops were to remain stationed in Berlin at Germany`s request.  The provisions of this Convention do not apply to disputes the settlement of which the parties have agreed to submit to another procedure for peaceful settlement. In the event of a dispute falling within the scope of Article 1 of the Convention, the parties shall undertake to rely on agreements between themselves which do not provide for a procedure involving binding decisions. Several developments in 1989 and 1990, together called the Turning Point and the Pacific Revolution, led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the SED in the German Democratic Republic (GDR or GDR). In the federal elections in the GDR on 18 March 1990, a partisan alliance in favour of German reunification under Article 23 of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany won a majority. :229-232:211-214 To achieve unity and full sovereignty, the two German states were ready to accept the terms of the Potsdam Agreement that concerned Germany.  On 31 August 1990, the FRG and the GDR signed the Unification Treaty, which describes the modalities and particularities of the GDR`s accession to the Federal Republic of Germany. It was then possible for all international parties to negotiate a final settlement.
 The contract was breached several times. The manoeuvres, among others, of NATO troops in Trollenhagen, Mecklenburg, on the territory of the former GDR, have been called into question.  [Verification required] Article 5(3) of the Treaty on the territory of the former GDR provides that „foreign armed forces and nuclear weapons, or their carriers, shall not be deployed or deployed in that part of Germany“. In September 2007, France offered Germany joint control of its nuclear arsenal, but the Germans opposed it.  Germany has pledged to reduce its armed forces to no more than 370,000 men, of whom 345,000 were not to be in the army and air force. . . .
