Memorandum of Conversation, by the Acting Secretary of State

The French Ambassador36 called to see me this afternoon at his request.

The Ambassador expressed his satisfaction at the carrying out of the North African trade agreement and expressed the earnest hope that this Government would give immediate consideration to the possibility of a trade arrangement covering West Africa. I said that further consideration would be given to that possibility.
