Kennan. A similar request wns presented about the same time to the International Committee of the Red Cross at Geneva. Failure Kvatnples Noted The note lo Russia said that though both the Chinese and Korean Reds had promised to abide by the 1949 convention, neither had done so. It cited three examples of failure to make good on the pledges. The U.S. said the Reds have: 1. Never permitted "inspection of prisoner of war camps by an Impartial International body." 2. Failed to provide for delivery of relief parcels to prisoners. 3. Placed "prisoner of war camps ... in areas in proximity to military objectives, exposing the prisoners to danger of attack." Dy contrast, the American note to the Kremlin sairi, the U.N. i Command "has consistent!;.' abided ' by The provisions of the Geneva Convention."
