The Minister in China (Reinsch) to the Secretary of State


Referring to your telegram April 25, 5 p.m. There is no change in the embargo matter. The Chinese Government feels embargo is a great detriment but will maintain it for the sake of Allies while they insist. The British and French Governments continue to insist on embargo, Russian Minister believing that export of foodstuffs to regions east of Irkutsk not dangerous but desirable.
