The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France ( Sharp )19

6379. Your 5924, November 20. The Italian Ambassador was today orally informed that the Department is disturbed at the reports showing Italian–Jugo-Slav friction in the Adriatic and that this Government hoped that Italy would take no step which would tend to increase such friction until all matters could be frankly discussed at the coming Peace Conference. The Ambassador showed Department a telegram just received from Sonnino, reporting a conversation with the French Ambassador at Rome, at which it was agreed that the Italian and Allied flags shall fly from all occupied places outside territory occupied by Italy under the armistice.

  1. The same to the Ambassador in Italy as Department’s No. 1854, Nov. 22, 1918, 4 p.m.
