The Chargé in Germany (Kirk) to the Secretary of State

384. Secretary of Slovak Legation which has recently been established here has asked orally for an appointment for his Minister to call on me to discuss some matters affecting trade between the United States and Slovakia the precise nature of which was not stated. As Embassy does not appear to have any definite instructions in regard to the conduct of any relations with Slovak representatives I have withheld a reply to this request and would appreciate the Department’s instructions in the premises.

I understand that British and French Embassies here have as yet had no relations with the present Slovak Legation in Berlin and have asked their Governments for instructions.
