Dear Mr. Batt: I refer to my visit to your office on tho 24tn of bAar our discussion of matters pertaining to =w9dsn. Somewhat along the lines of this discusJion thiFtrg rIL)wisri action by our Government in demanding that nalanj .1;t07.

For example, it is one thing to demand that Finlanci i*ot:1:11t.; on Russia, but it is a strange demand when we amd aay JoL4n the withdrawal of Russian forces from. locatious OCCAplOdo as the Hango Peninsula. Neither do we apparentLy -Arer :Jr 4r4 A,1 in a position to offer at this time - a solution ;its to how to rid her country of German troops, or how she Y.) .0b?,aY1 stuffs, medicine and military needs, all of WrLiQh 3:1P wuL b :171- mediate1jr in desperate needand which she can now cin;.y btan taru Germany. The point, however, that is perhaps of .v9a tal- portance is that while we make this demand now w w ttho.tel:1y :a- pensating guarantee to Finland that we will protect ner agalast any new aggression later when Russia regains her strer_gth. I feel the above viewpoint illustrates the need of a smaLL but capub commission working within our State Department to plan ad work ot all the inter-related problems involved in our handling QC our ar:baiz..i. with the Scandinavian countries. It is evident that such a commLssioa would work principally with Sweden as the effective medium of actapish- ing the various results desired from both a diplomatic and military standpoint. 4.roc4 14, y t".? It is my view that if we were working with Sweden along the lines discussed with you a few weeks ago, we could in thls instance have approached the Swedish Government and requested their assistance in bringing about an ending of Finland's activities within say a matter of three or four weeks. You undoubtedly appreciate that Sweden has played - and must continue to play - a very active role in the doings of the northern countries and has a lot at stake in regard to the - nprlassifiRd and Approved For Release 2013/09/13: CIA-RDP13X00001R000100180004-1 Declassified and Approved For Release 2013/09/13: CIA-RDP13X00001R000100180004-1 ,stops that Finland takqs, Purthpro snp (v137 r,hrq she -ix rendering Finland, nurfLalqnt pr.93Aro, tr., 41 It rt q&, 40- that would have to be rAmpoctod.
