578. Your 228, July 11, 6 p.m. In an interview July 12th with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, I inquired as to the steps being taken to pay Nanking incident claims. Dr. Wang confirmed that the matter had been referred to the Executive Yuan and that the latter had instructed the Minister of Finance to devise means of payment. He expressed the hope that the Ministry of Finance would take prompt action, adding that he would inform me of it at once.
