300 — The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the Governor of Fiji
The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the Governor of Fiji
In case of any possible misunderstanding of the attitude of the New Zealand Government in respect of the defence of Fiji, I think you should know for your private information that the New Zealand Government some little time ago offered to leave their troops in Fiji in the meantime in addition to the Americans. Admiral King, it is understood, was not favourable to the suggestion but we repeated the offer yesterday. No conditions at all were attached to the offer.
