For this purpose the Conference decided to establish in London a European Advisory Commission to study these questions and to make joint recommendations to the three Governments. Provision was made for continuing when necessary the tripartite consultations of representatives of the three Governments in the respective capitals through the existing diplomatic channels. The Conference also agreed to establish an Advisory Council for matters relating to Italy to be composed in the first instance of representatives of their three Govern­ments and of the French Committee o f National Libera­tion. Provision is made for addition to this council of representatives of Greece and Yugoslavia, in view of their special interests arising out of aggressions of Fascist Italy upon their territory during the present war. This council will deal with day-to-day questions other than military preparations, and will make recommendations designed to co-ordinate allied policy with regard to Italy.
