Memorandum of Conversation, by the Under Secretary of State (Welles)

The Ambassador of Yugoslavia called to see me this morning at his request.

The Ambassador expressed deep appreciation for the opportunity which the President had given him of talking with him last week. He told me that he had urgently submitted, in the name of the King [Page 1007]of Yugoslavia, the request to the President that American Army officers be detailed as attaches to General Mihailovich at his headquarters in Montenegro. He said that the President had asked whether the Ambassador had discussed this with Lord Halifax49 and, when Mr. Fotitch had replied that he had not, the President had made a memorandum of the point and had said that he would take the matter up.
