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


1386. Remytel 1360, March 26. When I saw Sforza yesterday at his request, he informed me that he had given further thought to question of Italian application for membership in UN. He said that it was his considered opinion that it would be very helpful to electoral situation here if Italian application for entry into UN were pushed prior to elections. The main consideration was of course matter of timing which should not be too soon after Trieste move.
