The Minister in Switzerland (Harrison) to the Secretary of State

18. My 17.65 Koo has just taken the trouble to call to tell me that at meeting of Advisory Committee tonight he will present a draft resolution denouncing Japan as aggressor. If the Committee refers his proposal to the Subcommittee he will not object.

Koo also told me that this afternoon Munters sounded him out as to Chinese membership in the Subcommittee saying that several delegations felt that as Japan would not be present, China should not participate. Koo pointed out to Munters that it was not China’s fault if Japan were not present. In fact China would be glad to have Japanese present. But if China were to be excluded from the Subcommittee Koo would then withdraw entirely from the Advisory Committee. I merely thanked Koo for the information.

Nine-thirty p.m. meeting has just been postponed to Friday morning.

  1. September 30, 4 p.m., not printed.
