Germany's geographical position in the centre of Europe and its potential economic strength, made it difficult for the western powers and the USSR to agree about what they could do with Germany. The USSR did not wish to see a resurgent united Germany as that would pose a threat to its security. At the same time, it wished to get as much as out of Germany as possible in terms of reparations. The USA had come to see that the best hope for European peace would lie on the rapid economic recovery of Germany.
