The Minister in Hungary (Pell) to the Secretary of State

703. I saw Prime Minister 8 o’clock this evening. He said because of Central European solidarity which he compared with solidarity of all American Republics, Hungary was obliged to sever relations with United States but not with intention of declaring war.

He presumed Rumania would follow suit and that all American officials from Hungary, Germany and Rumania would be sent home together.

He said he would have to consult Berlin about our method of departure and route.
