793.94 Conference/45: Telegram

The Ambassador in Belgium (Gibson) to the Secretary of State

93. My telegram No. 88, October 15, 9 p.m.9 Learn from Foreign Office that acceptances have been received from the following countries: Great Britain, Canada, France, China. No refusals have been [Page 87] received to date. Invitations were sent not only to original signatories but to adhering powers also.

Although the Japanese Ambassador here intimated to the Minister for Foreign Affairs in a conversation on October 16 that Japan would probably not be represented at the Conference, the Foreign Office has the impression based on information from Tokyo that it has not yet been definitely determined that Japan will not attend the Conference.
