NotesAnglo-French-Soviet Negotiations. - Further Talks - British and French Military Missions to Moscow. New British suggestions in connection with the negotiations for an Anglo-French-Soviet mutual assistance pact were handed over to M. Molotov by the British Ambassador in Moscow on July 1. According to reports in the Press, these showed another advance towards the Russian point of view, in that the demand for specific guarantees for the Baltic States was agreed to in substance. The Russian reply was received on July 3; in it the British offer of a Baltic guarantee was accepted, but the necessity of making provision against any threat to the independence of these States by internal developments was emphasised. Further conversations between the two sides followed on July 8-9, and on July 17, after consultations between the British and French Ambassadors and their Governments. No definite progress was reported after these meetings.
