Helsinki, July 29, 1940—4 p.m.
[Received July 29—3:03 p.m.]

328. The Minister of Foreign Affairs told me today that directors of the Petsamo Nickel Company had now agreed to deliver nickel ore from their mines to the Germans and the Russians until the end of the current year in the proportion of 60 and 40 percent respectively. While this arrangement was not palatable to the British Government it had acquiesced.
