The Ambassador in Turkey (Steinhardt) to the Secretary of State

484. See my 319, February 23. The Secretary General of Foreign Office informed me last night that in response to the assurances given me by him that the movement of chrome for British account would be materially increased, approximately 4,000 metric tons of 45 to 50 percent chrome ore had arrived Iskenderun during the last few days and that the movement would continue.
