222. Your 279, August 5, 5 p.m.

In view of your reports as to the urgency of the situation the Department considers that action upon the suggestion contained in its 198, July 15, should not be postponed to await the result of such an investigation. The Department therefore hopes you will be able to obtain the early consent of the Diplomatic Body thereto.
