The Acting Secretary of State to the United States Political Adviser for Germany (Murphy)
1156. Urtel 1217, Dec. 8.41 Brit suggestion that United Nations countries other than the chiefly interested 16 United Nations should be allowed to accredit military missions to Control Council and other countries should be allowed to establish consular offices does not accord with previous Brit proposals nor with Dept’s views (Deptels 317, Aug 21; 60, July 4; Instruction 114, July 1942). We still deem it preferable that other United Nations and neutral countries be permitted to establish agencies accredited to Control Council, which agencies may perform representative and consular functions as required.
