3130. Department’s 2804, May 4, 3 p.m. Our need for a Consulate at Bahrein was taken up again with Foreign Office in considerable detail on April 12. Foreign Office promptly consulted with Government of India once more. As no reply was forthcoming Foreign Office 2 days ago urged Government of India to expedite its reply. We were assured at Foreign Office today that it will give us an answer just as soon as possible.
