The Ambassador in Spain (Weddell) to the Secretary of State

626. My 619, November 6, 7 p.m.10 The British Ambassador informs me that he had an interview with Franco yesterday and asked him the flat questions: whether there had been any change in Spain’s international policy and whether German troops would be allowed to enter the country.

The Caudillo replied categorically that there had been no change in the policy of his Government and that if German troops crossed the frontier force would be met with force.
