No. 458
Editorial Note

According to the United States Delegation Order of the Day, USDEL(OD)18, the Austrian Experts met twice on February 11. The first meeting took place at 10:30 a.m., but no record of it has been found in Department of State files. The second meeting took place at 5 p.m. and included a member of the unofficial Austrian Delegation. In this second session Figl’s speech (see footnote 4, Document 449) was again discussed and the Austrians agreed to delete the references to neutrality and Nazi development of the Austrian oil fields as well as redrafting the opening paragraph to express thanks for being invited to the conference and to include a plea for full participation.
