MEMORANDUM FOR THE PRESIDENT
From: William P. Clark
Subject: MESSAGE FROM MRS. THATCHER
Attached at Tab A is a long letter from Margaret Thatcher requesting a meeting of the United States, the French, the Germans, and the Italians on Polish sanctions. It would be a secret meeting to agree on a set of sanctions which then would be adopted by the other NATO countries. She proposes that if this meeting agrees on a tough set of sanctions, the United States would lift its present sanctions on exports by subsidiaries in Western European countries, and would not take a next unilateral step.
Al Haig’s cable at Tab B says that he is presently arranging for the meeting MT requested and that he will discuss with you on his return our strategy for that meeting.
