The Secretary of State to the Minister in Rumania (Culbertson)


15. Mr. Cretziano, the Rumanian Minister, has expressed orally to the Department his concern caused by several speeches recently delivered in Congress of an anti-Rumanian character. A suggestion was made to the Minister that his taking any cognizance of these speeches would be unwise, particularly since, under the American system of government, the Executive has no way of controlling any member of the Government’s legislative branch in the expressions of opinion.

This information should be brought to the attention of the Rumanian Ministry for Foreign Affairs by you orally and informally.
