43. The Debt Commission has informed Department that several of the Governments indebted to the United States have, in the course of negotiations for refunding, requested inclusion of a most-favored-nation clause in one form or another, but that to date the Commission has denied all requests of this sort. This statement is for your confidential guidance in any conversations you may have with Latvian officials on Latvia’s indebtedness to the United States.

Please advise Department promptly of any developments in regard to designation of representative by Latvia to negotiate with Debt Commission.
