No. 1057
The Assistant Secretary of State ( Dunn ) to the Secretary of the Soviet Delegation ( Novikov )

Dear Mr. Novikov : I refer to your note of July 25, 19451 with which you enclosed an aide-mémoire regarding the non-application of the unconditional surrender formula toward German troops in Norway.

Since this is an area of primary British military responsibility I assume that the necessary information will be submitted to you by the British Government.

Sincerely yours,

James Clement Dunn
