The Minister in Egypt (Kirk) to the Secretary of State

928. Department’s 680, May 17, 8 p.m. Moose has left for Jidda but before his departure he and British Chargé d’Affaires at Saudi Arabia had conversations here with Economic Adviser Ministry of State relative to Saudi Arabian currency question. See Legation’s 861, May 11, 9 a.m.

Economic Adviser is not in Cairo at present but his office states that no further discussions are scheduled for near future on above question and that their nature would, in any case, depend on Department’s reply to questions raised in Legation’s 861 which Moose drafted after consultation with Economic Adviser.

Department’s 680 and this message repeated to Jidda.
