SWISS TO REPRESENT JAPAN IN US
W- WASHHIGTONIt was dis-
closed in an announcement
Sunday by the State Depart
ment that Switzerland will
take overrepresentation of
Japanese interests in this
country.
Spain represented Japan
here until last April 4,
when it severed relations
due to dissatisfaction of
Japanese treatment of Span
iards in the Philippines.
According to the an
nouncement, Japan then
asked the Swiss to take
over. Since the Swiss also
represent US interests in
Japan, they said they would
agree on condition that
Tokyo allowed their ob
servers to visit "all camps
where American nationals
are held in Japan and areas
now occupied by Japanese
armed forces,"
The Japanese TT&r Minis
try "agreed in principle."
Thereupon, Switzerland
asked for American approval
of the Tokyo request for
representation here and
Acting Secretary of State
Grew assented.
