Name That European

OK, which great European political leader said this about the United States?

We have nothing against the American people. We know and respect their political views and internal affairs, even if we might do things differently. We believe we have the right to expect the same of American public opinion .... It is time to recommend peace and good sense. American public opinion is going the wrong way. It would benefit by returning to the old, tested practices of international courtesy and good manners.

[Answer: Goebbels, Germany, 1939]
