INTEREST OF THE UNITED STATES IN THE PROMOTION
  OF WORLD PEACE THROUGH INTERNATIONAL ECO-
  NOMIC COOPERATION1
611.0031/2717
             Memorandum by the Secretary of State
                               [WASHINGTON] February 18, 1937.
  The new French Ambassador2 called to pay his respects. Apart
from the usual exchange of greetings and welcome, the Ambassador
repeated and elaborated the attitude of his Government towards our
reciprocity program and connected it up closely with any movement
for peace. He said that his Government was in the most thorough
accord with my Government in support of this program and movement
and that they would be watching every opportunity to confer, col-
laborate and cooperate. I thanked him and expressed my gratifica-
tion to be told what I really already knew about the favorable atti-
tude of the Ambassador himself and that of his Government towards
this program. He expressed himself upon leaving as believing that
the British and French and the United States Governments could and
should collaborate and cooperate in the work of economic restoration
and that this would make it possible to bring same about.
