File No. 763.72/3238

The Minister in Denmark ( Egan ) to the Secretary of State


439. To-day at 5 o’clock the Foreign Minister brought me the following:

I authorize you to communicate to your Government that in the opinion of the Danish Government the position of Denmark both actually and formally is so different from that of the United States [Page 117] that it is not possible to draw an analogy from the one to the other, and further that the three northern governments are in consultation with one another at Stockholm in order to fix on a basis of international law the attitude to be taken by them on account of the new German regulations.
