United States Delegation Working Paper 1

United States Position on Compensation for War Losses From Italy

Greece, Yugoslavia, and Ethiopia, shall file with the Allied Commission for Italy prior to November 1, 1945, a statement of the nature and amount of the damage suffered by them as a result of Italian military action.
The Governments of the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States will consider such claims, in consultation with the other governments concerned, for the purpose of determining the extent to which Italy shall be required to make compensation by deliveries which will not in any way place any burden for supporting the Italian peacetime economy on any other country.
