File No. 861.00/3049
The Ambassador in Japan (Morris) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 27, 11 p.m.]
The Japanese Government has refused the recent request of the British Government to send additional forces into Siberia to support the Czechs in the Volga region. The French Chargé d’Affaires was instructed to join in the request but did not receive his instructions until after the answer of the Japanese Government had been handed to my British colleague.
