Minister Hill to the Secretary of State.


(Turkey has signed but not ratified all three Hague conventions and is not represented permanent court or administrative council. Turkey is the only signatory that has not ratified and has been notified by the Netherlands that until she has ratified she can not participate in the revision of the treaties or discussions. Difference between Turkey and nonsignatories is that Turkey has only to ratify while others can accomplish adherence only under article 60, convention of arbitration. Netherlands is waiting for Russia to name date of conference.)
