The Acting Secretary of State to the Consul at Aden (Clark)
6. Your proposed informal visit to the Yemen meets with Department’s approval. Bearing in mind that this Government has not accorded official recognition to the Yemen, you should listen to such proposals or suggestions as Yemeni officials may make to you, stating that you will be glad to convey them to your Government, but you should, of course, make no commitments of any kind.
Please report fully to Department upon your visit.
