In view of the information contained in your 658, February 21, 8 p.m., Ambassador Harriman is not being requested to approach the Soviet authorities at this time regarding the message from the Freedom Council and political party leaders. Department feels that this decision should not, however, occasion a further delay in the delivery of our acknowledgment to the Council and the party leaders. You are therefore requested to transmit it to Foss and Munck at your earliest convenience.
