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

686. There has been no noticeable change of late in Anglo-Turk relations. The British continue their attitude of aloofness which the Turks have now adopted in their attitude towards the British. In conversation yesterday with the British Ambassador he indicated that if the Turk Government responds in a cooperative manner to the British and American notes on future trade between Turkey and Germany an improvement in Anglo-Turk relations may result.
