652. Both British and Belgians have accepted formula telephoned to me by Mr. Hugh Wilson, Guillaume having received authorization by telephone from Brussels.

The Belgian Government will issue a press communiqué tonight, which will be communicated also to the interested diplomatic representatives at Brussels, saying that they intend to issue invitations. The invitations themselves, according to Guillaume, should be forthcoming tomorrow and the date of October 30 will be set for the opening of the Conference.

The Foreign Office informs me that they will not issue any communiqué at present.
