627. From the American delegates to the Provisional International Sugar Council. Department’s 404, October 1, 5 p.m. and 405, September [October] 1, 7 p.m.12

Secretariat advises that official delegates of France, Russia, Brazil and Yugoslavia have been appointed to permanent International Sugar Council although those countries have not yet ratified the [Page 957] Sugar Agreement nor made the declaration provided in article 4 of the Protocol.

May the American delegates to the “Provisional” Sugar Council presume that they are authorized to attend the meetings of the “Permanent” Council? China and India are not expected to be represented at the forthcoming meeting. [Johnson and Taylor.]
