819. My 786, April 16, 7 p.m.74 The [Chinese Ambassador made the statement?] that he has now received “a satisfactory reply” to his inquiry of the Soviet Government concerning continued assistance to Chiang Kai-shek. As there were Axis diplomats present at our meeting I did not press him for details.
