         PRINCIPLES FOR T-HE COMPILATION AND EDITING OF
                       "FOREIGN RELATIONS"
  The principles which guide the compilation and editing of Foreign
Relations are stated in Department of State Regulation 2 FAM 1350
of June 15, 1961, a revision of the order approved on March 26, 1925,
by Mr. Frank B. Kellogg, then Secretary of State. The text of the
regulation, as further amended, is printed below:
1350 DOCUMENTARY RECORD OF AMERICAN DIPLOMACY
1351 Scope of Documentation
  The publication Foreign Relations of the United States constitutes
the official record of the foreign policy of the United States. These
volumes include, subject to necessary security considerations, all
documents needed to give a comprehensive record of the major foreign
policy decisions within the range of the Department of State's re-
sponsibilities, together with appropriate materials concerning the
facts which contributed to the formulation of policies. When further
material is needed to supplement the documentation in the Depart-
ment's files for a proper understanding of the relevant policies of the
United States, such papers should be obtained from other Government
agencies.
