The Special Mission at Lausanne to the Secretary of State
[Received 6:56 a.m.]
315. I sent communication today to Ismet in conformity with your telegram 133 of May 9, first and second paragraphs, and I had a conversation with him on the basis of your fourth paragraph. I proposed that the American and Turkish experts meet informally for discussion of basis of negotiations. At first Ismet seemed to be disappointed not to have the negotiations start at once, but he agreed that he would consult his experts.
