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

717. Rochat27 expressed delight at the prospective resumption of our program for the economic supplying of French Africa and the indications of British agreement thereto. The latter, he said, is encouraging as an indication that the British are desirous of “localizing” the Syrian affair and of preventing extension of the conflict to other areas.

  1. Charles Antoine Rochat, Acting Secretary General of the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
