868.51 Refugee Loan, 1928/82
Memorandum by Mr. Paul H. Alling of the Division of Near Eastern Affairs
The Greek Minister called today and said that he had received instructions to make a statement to the American Government regarding Greek debts due to the United States. Thereupon he started to read in translation from a telegram. After he had read this over once I asked him if he objected to rereading it in order that I might take his statement down. He readily agreed to this suggestion and dictated the statement which is attached hereto.
I told him that in view of the character of this statement I thought it would be well for him to repeat it to Mr. Bundy. The Minister said that he was quite willing to do this, and I immediately made arrangements for him to see Mr. Bundy, to whom he repeated the statement which he had made to me. Mr. Bundy told the Minister that he would pass the statement along to the Treasury Department and in due course would let the Minister know the Treasury’s views.[Page 413]
