The Secretary of State to the Minister Resident in Iraq ( Wilson )

16. Your telegram No. 12, January 13, 11 p.m. We are notifying Chinese and Soviet Governments of Iraq’s intention to adhere to United Nations Declaration. In a very few days we expect formally to accept adherence. Meanwhile there should be no announcement anywhere that Iraq is asking to adhere to the Declaration.
