The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Greece (Skinner)
9. Your 9, March 8, 5 p.m. Department does not consider that it can formally oppose new regulations provided:
- That Greek Government has agreed not to apply increased duties to wheat and flour on order prior to announcement of new conversion rates;
- That most-favored-nation treatment is accorded American products.
You should insist upon conditions (1) and (2) and in your discretion you may again present considerations set forth in your No. 75 of February 11.
If Greek Government contemplates measures other than mere increase in conversion rates, please telegraph.
