The Ambassador in France (Bullitt) to the Secretary of State

945. Leger29 said to me today that he was somewhat fearful that Japan might be thinking of some sort of aggressive action against French Indo-China. Six times in the last week Japanese airplanes had flown over portions of Indo-China and had dropped bombs. The Japanese Government had been informed that any Japanese plane flying over any portion of Indo-China in the future would be shot at immediately. Since this warning no Japanese planes had flown over French Indo-China.

  1. Secretary General of the French Foreign Office.
