NotesGermany. - Diplomatic Changes. - New Ambassadors at the Vatican, Madrid and Nanking. ... Weizsacker and Dieckhoff, both Catholics, are experienced diplomatists (the former held high rank in the foreign office since 1935 and belongs to the "old school" of diplomats), and their appointment to the Vatican and Madrid was seen in London as part of Hitler's "diplomatic offensive" to create support for his plans for the so-called "Statute of Europe" sedulously fostered by Axis propaganda.
