10. Letter from the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs (Warnke) to the Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs (Leddy)1
Regarding the Department of State’s draft of February 16 on the question of US-Danish nuclear weapons policies,2 I would like to propose the attached preliminary revision as a basis for a joint State-Defense position.
I understand that your staff has assured mine that the final US position will not be communicated to the Danish Government until there has been full review in both our Departments of the Danish position.
