Abstract: 
In an aide-mémoire dated September 22, 1988, the Soviet Union launched a broad international dialogue on the ways and means to ensure comprenhensive secuirty and enhanced enforcement by the United Nations in military, political, economic, ecological humanitarian and other fields, on the basis of strict compliance with the Charter of the United Nations.  Although the aide-mémoire is quite general and the dialogue very young, the aide-mémoire has significant potential to enhance the role of the United Nations in international enforcement matters.
