Cablegram P144 PARIS, 13 August 1946, 7.20 p.m.
Your P.143. 
1. I am glad that the Trusteeship Statement has been made and
reception has been good. However, it is not practicable to clear
the matter with the Foreign Ministers at Paris as their
appropriate advisors are not here. I suggest, therefore, that the
Governments concerned be approached in the first instance through
2. Of course, we can promise support for New Zealand draft at the
Assembly on the understanding of reciprocity from them. I agree
with (A) as to States directly concerned and still think that New
Zealand, United Kingdom, United States and France should be asked
to approve our draft without elaborate discussion of the meaning
'States directly concerned', leaving the matter free for
discussions and argument at the Conference.
