Memorandum by the Chief of the Division of Eastern European Affairs (Kelley)
|Conversation:||The Minister of Finland, Mr. Eero Järnefelt;|
|The Secretary of the Finnish Legation, Dr. Sigurd von Numers;|
|Mr. Robert F. Kelley.|
The Finnish Minister read a telegram which he had just received from the Foreign Office with regard to proposed Articles 6, 11, and 14.15 the termination provisions of which had not been accepted by the [Page 78] Finnish Government. The telegram stated that the Finnish Government is willing to accept the termination provisions contained in Articles 6 and 11 provided the United States consents to the omission of Article 14.
I told the Minister that I did not believe that we could agree to the omission of Article 14, but said that I would take the matter up at once with the competent officers in the Department.
- In the revised draft of March 24, 1936, articles VI, XI, and XIV had been renumbered VII, XIII, and XVI, respectively.↩
