Memorandum by an Official of the Economic Policy Department

  Berlin, January 4, 1940.
e. o. W V 29.

In connection with preliminary conversations concerning the extension of the German-Finnish economic agreements, the Finns inquired whether there was any possibility that Germany might permit the transit of war material destined for Finland. I stated that we could not permit such transit in the future.
