NotesRibbentrop's Visit to Italy. - Talks with Mussolini. It was announced in Berlin and
Rome on March 1 that Ribbentrop had "at the Fuehrer's request", visited Rome from Feb 24-28
and had had a number of conversations with Mussolini (to whom he handed a personal message
from Hitler), ... "The conversations resulted in complete mutual agreement such as has
always existed between Germany and Italy and which is the guarantee of victory in the
common struggle which Germany and Italy are conducting in complete solidarity...." Berlin
radio described the Rome discussions as the "Magna Carta of the Great European area" and
declared that "Europe has taken action stations". [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5634]
