The Political Adviser to the Representative on the European Advisory Commission ( Mosely ) to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom ( Winant )1

Victory 373. To American Embassy London, repeated to Department of State, Washington from Mosely.

French approval EAC (European Advisory Commission) agreement of control machinery in Austria noted. Have French approved agreement on zones of occupation Austria? Has EAC completed preparation agreed texts of joint statements on (1) zones of occupation (2) control machinery (3) consultation with governments of other United Nations? If three summaries are ready, have they received approval of the four governments? We assume exact texts do not require reference to United States, United Kingdom, and French Governments, but Soviet EAC delegation may wish refer [Page 679] exact texts. If this supposition is true it might save time to refer exact texts to Potsdam to expedite Soviet clearance.

Has EAC discussed a date for issuance of three joint statements in four capitals? Conference communiqué should contain reference to the two Austrian agreements and to intended four power statement which should be issued very shortly after issuance communiqué.

Please inform urgently status these agreed joint statements.
