Aide-memoire [14 May 1943] 
Having taken note of Dr. Evatt's speeches , the Government of
the Netherlands wants to point out that, although they fully
recognize the desirability of establishing, after the war, the
security in [sic] the West and South-West Pacific areas by the
common efforts of friendly Powers in mutual co-operation, they
cannot agree with the claim (as expressed by Dr. Evatt) of any
Power, however friendly its relation to us, to become a 'partner'
in the process of developing and assisting the Indonesian people.
My Government want to make it quite clear, however, that they mean
to welcome in the future, as in the past, the full collaboration
of all foreign elements who wish to contribute to the prosperity
of the Netherlands Indies, provided a harmonious internal
development is not endangered.
