The Ambassador to the Greek Government in Exile (MacVeagh) to the Secretary of State

Greek 13. Acting on behalf of Macmillan, Chairman of the Advisory Council for Italy the British Ambassadors to Greece and Yugoslavia on January 8, 1944 transmitted invitations to those two Governments to appoint representatives to the Council and as instructed I associated myself with those invitations as did the Soviet Ambassador and the delegate of the French Committe of National Liberation.

While I have not yet received official replies to my communications in this connection I learn informally that the Yugoslav Government has appointed Dr. Miha Krek a Slovene and former deputy Prime Minister of Yugoslavia as its representative on the Council and that the Greek Government has similarly appointed Jean Politis former Minister to Rome.

Repeated to Algiers for Reinhardt.
