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.
