Department of State Press Release, December 14, 19441

The American and British Ambassadors in Rome have been in close contact during the recent developments in Italy. The American Ambassador, Alexander C. Kirk, has kept the Department of State carefully informed. He reports that the new Government of Italy is supported by a majority of the political parties, comprising the Committee of National Liberation, and thus maintains a representative character.

The United States Government, in accord with the British Government, is happy to see the new Italian Government under Signor Bonomi take office.
