Moscow Embassy Files—897.6 Berlin Route

No. 534
The Soviet Assistant Foreign Commissar (Vyshinsky) to the Ambassador in the Soviet Union (Harriman)

Dear Mr. Ambassador: Acknowledging receipt of your letter of July 71 concerning the establishment in Berlin of a civil airlines connection served by American and Soviet airplanes, I must remind you that in our conversation of June 15 [sic] I called your attention to the fact that practically speaking there has already been considerable improvement in air communications over the given route and that I recognize the importance of this matter, but I do not believe that at the present time this question is sufficiently prepared for discussion in substance. As to the future, I can inform you only upon receipt of instructions from the Soviet Government.

Please accept [etc.]

A. Vyshinski
