The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the Soviet Union (Harriman)

698. From the Secretary. In response to a question from Ambassador Winant I have informed him that the Department would strive to assure effective coordination between his negotiations in EAC and the work of other Allied authorities and special missions by keeping him fully informed concerning the scope and progress of negotiations elsewhere, and by assuring conformity of other policy discussions with policies developed in EAC. I request that you keep this matter in mind, particularly with respect to the forthcoming deliberations of the Reparation Commission. [Stettinius.]
