The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Winant)

5419. Urtel 6519 June 28. Dept concurs draft terms Brit FonOff reply to demand Soviet Amb re access German FonOff archives allegedly brought England. Dept believes however that information on general extent and nature of German archives under control US and Brit authorities in Germany should be made available Soviet representatives earliest practicable date. It is assumed that Soviets will similarly inform us German archives which they have found. It would seem preferable not amend draft by inclusion reference to joint US–UK control of documents in question.
