He has telegraphed the Germans proposing – contrary to the Salzburg decisions – proceeding at once with the declaration.” Netaji further won over Germany’s foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, and at one point had support from Japan, Italy, and German foreign ministry in his effort to force Hitler into taking favourable decisions.
