The deal stunned the world. John Gunther recalled in August 1939 in Moscow that the news of the 19 August trade agreement surprised journalists and diplomats during the Soviet-French-British negotiations, but hoped for world peace. They did not expect the announcement of the non-aggression pact on 21 August: “Nothing more incredible was conceivable. Astonishment and skepticism quickly turned into dismay and alarm.”  The news was greeted with total dismay and surprise by government leaders and the world`s media, most of whom knew only the Franco-British negotiations that had been taking place for months;   by Germany`s allies, especially Japan; Communist International and foreign communist parties; and Jewish communities around the world.  The day after the pact was signed, the Franco-British military delegation urgently requested a meeting with Soviet military negotiator Kliment Voloshilov.  On August 25, Wooshilov told them that “given the changing political situation, no useful purpose can be used to continue the conversation.”  On the same day, Hitler told the British ambassador in Berlin that the pact with the Soviets prevented Germany from facing a war on two fronts that changed the strategic position of world war and that Britain had to accept its demands on Poland.  The secret services of the Baltic States did not express their concerns about the possible existence of a secret protocol until a few days after the signing of the pact. Speculation intensified when Soviet negotiators referred to their content during negotiations on military bases in these countries (see the occupation of the Baltic countries). The German Communist Party has shown the same attitude. In Der Welt, a communist newspaper published in Stockholm, exiled communist leader Walter Ulbricht opposed the Allies, declaring that Britain was “the most reactionary force in the world” and argued that “the German government has declared itself ready to maintain friendly relations with the Soviet Union while the Franco-English war bloc wants a war against the socialist Soviet Union.
The Soviet people and the people who work in Germany have an interest in preventing the English war plan.  However, there are still a few secret contracts, most often under agreements to establish foreign military bases.  Thus, under the 1960 security treaty between the United States and Japan, the two nations entered into three agreements that could be defined as secret contracts (at least in the broadest sense, according to a panel of experts convened by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs).  These agreements dealt with the transit and stockpiling of nuclear weapons by U.S. forces in Japan, despite Japan`s formal nuclear non-proliferation policy.  Prior to its publication in 2010, the Japanese government had gone so far as to convict journalist Nishiyama Takichi, who tried to uncover a contract, for espionage.  Operation Condor was a secret treaty between the United States and five South American nations to coordinate the fight against insurgency and the “dirty war” against communist rebels and other leftists in Latin America.  According to the commentary of Dr. Schmalenbach on the Vienna Convention on Treaty Law, “the fact that secret treaties today do not play an essential role is less the result of [Article 102 of the Un Charter] than a general change in the behaviour of international relations.”  3 Hitler`s LightningThus Hitler and Stalin took advantage of the secret agreement?
