The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Italy ( Kirk )

1376. Urtel 2321 [2329], Aug 13. Dept would have no objection to return of Bolzano Province to Ital administration if in opinion of SAC and AC there is no reason for retention of AMG. Ital Govt should be informed, however, that return is without prejudice to final disposition of Bolzano territory.

It is presumed SAC will recommend to CCS modification of Fan 53620 before proceeding with this matter.
