The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Bingham)

40. We are at a loss to understand the attitude of the British Delegation at Geneva toward important elements of our Draft Convention on Arms Manufacture and Trade and would appreciate receiving your analysis as to the motives for this stand and as to the likelihood of its modification in the course of further discussion.

Please repeat this telegram and your reply to Amdelgat Geneva.
