The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Iceland (Barnes)

74. Your 134, March 3, 6 p.m. The question of an agreement with respect to the post-war use of airdromes constructed by our forces in Iceland is receiving consideration. In the meantime, this question should be kept separate in your negotiations with the Icelandic Government from that of the additional land needed by the Army which you are requested to press to the extent desired by General Bonesteel.
