The Chargé in China ( Atcheson ) to the Secretary of State

1730. Embassy’s 1688, September 12. We have now received an informal note from Acting Foreign Minister dated September 15 in which Dr. Wu states that the issuance of statement in question is both timely and proper in the opinion of Chinese Government. He adds that, however “in view of prospective developments in military situation in Far East”, it is feeling of Chinese Government that there is a similar need of common understanding in regard to question of administration of liberated areas in this region. He expresses the hope of Chinese Government that such common understanding may be reached at an early date by Governments of the United States, Great Britain and China and he asks that his comments and this hope be brought to the attention of the American Government.
