Abstract:

The article presents the text of United States President John F. Kennedy's 1962 address concerning the removal of Soviet weapons from Cuba. Kennedy asserts that United States surveillance indicated that Cuba was gathering missile sites and was pursuing further nuclear weapons development. The article describes the types of weapons gathered by Cuba and their potential threat to major cities in the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Kennedy expresses distrust of the Soviet Union in their claims to only provide defensive weapons to Cuba. The speech describes previous relations between the United States and the Soviet Union, whereby a balance was sought in nuclear weapons proliferation. Kennedy's speech describes the policies of the United States toward nuclear weapons and international cooperation. Steps to be made by the United States in response to Cuba's development of weapons sites are outlined, including the resolve to retaliate to any attacks on the United States, and a call for a meeting of the United Nations Security Council. Kennedy addresses Cuban citizens directly, urging them to abandon weapons development.
