Circular cablegram D1046 LONDON, 1 December 1943, 1.10 p.m.
MOST IMMEDIATE MOST SECRET AND PERSONAL
My immediately preceding telegram. 
Draft public communique:-
'President Roosevelt, Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek , Prime
Minister Churchill together with their respective military and
diplomatic advisers have completed a conference in North Africa.
 The following general statement was issued-
"The several military missions have agreed upon future military
operations against Japan. The three great Allies express their
resolve to bring unrelenting pressure against their brutal enemies
by sea, land and air. This pressure is already rising.
The three great Allies are fighting this war to restrain and
punish the aggression of Japan. They covet no gain for themselves
and have no thought of territorial expansion. It is their purpose
that Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific
which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the first
World War in 1914, and that all territories Japan has stolen from
the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa and Pescadores, shall be
restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled
from all other territories which she has taken by violence and
greed. The aforesaid three great powers, mindful of the
enslavement of the people of Korea, are determined that in due
course Korea shall become free and independent.
With these objects in view the three Allies, in harmony with those
United Nations at war with Japan, will continue to persevere in
serious and prolonged operations necessary for the procurement of
unconditional surrender of Japan."'
