A new initiative in terms of colonial policy was now required in order to impress upon international opinion the future benefits of continued British rule. In the event, this attempt was to become entangled with American efforts to define a joint approach to the post-war world based on traditional United States anti-colonialism and the application of the Atlantic Charter principles to the non-self-governing territories. In 1943 and 1944, the Foreign Office was also considering European security and the prevention of future German aggression, and, in view of doubts about an American commitment, co-operation with a restored France was believed to be the key element. The rivalry between Genral Henri Giraud and Charles de Gaulle, which continued until the latter became sole president of the Comité Français de Libération Nationale (CFLN) in November 1943, complicated dealings between the British and the Free French.
