The Ambassador in the Soviet Union (Harriman) to the Secretary of State

32. A memorandum dated January 4 has been received from the Foreign Office stating that a memorandum to the following effect [Page 85] has been delivered to the British Foreign Office by the Soviet Ambassador5 (see my telegram 19, January 4, 3 p.m.):

As the British Government, on the basis of the information available to it, considers that a reconciliation of the rivalry among the partisan groups in Greece is now possible, the Soviet Government considers it expedient, with the aim of strengthening the struggle against the German invaders, to support the creation of a unified front of all partisan groups in Greece.
