No. 254 :
M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs, to M. LÉON NÖEL, French Ambassador in Warsaw. Paris, August 26, 1939. 3.45 p.m.

THE following instructions have been sent by the Foreign Office to your British colleague:

During any conversations that may be opened between the German Government and the Polish Government upon the questions at issue between the two countries, and in order to prevent the Government of the Reich from seizing the pretext of alleged ill-treatment inflicted on the German minorities in Poland to break off such conversations, it is suggested that the Government of Warsaw should provide for the appointment in those regions of neutral observers, offering every guarantee of impartiality.

You should let the Polish Government know that you are in agreement with the démarche that your English colleague is to make to this effect.

Georges Bonnet.
