In recent days, representatives of the German government and Her Majesty`s Government have met in the United Kingdom, whose main objective was to pave the way for a general conference on the subject of naval armament limitation. I am very pleased to report to Your Excellency that Her Majesty`s Government in the United Kingdom has formally accepted the German Government`s proposal, which was discussed during these discussions, that the future strength of the German Navy in terms of the overall strength of the members of the Commonwealth of British Nations should be 35:100. Her Majesty`s Government in the United Kingdom considers this proposal to be a contribution of the utmost importance for the future limitation of the sea. They also believe that the agreement they have now reached with the German government and which they see as a permanent and final agreement between the two governments from today will facilitate the conclusion of a general agreement on the subject of maritime restriction between all the world`s maritime powers. In the field of Anglo-German relations, the agreement was of considerable importance. The United Kingdom expressed the hope, as Craigie Ribbentrop said, that it “should facilitate other agreements in a broader framework and that there have been no other considerations.” [3] In addition, the United Kingdom considered that it had turned out to be a “reference” to measure Germany`s intentions vis-à-vis the United Kingdom. [53] Hitler saw it as the beginning of an Anglo-German alliance and was very angry when it did not happen. [54] On 27 March 1935, Hitler appointed Joachim von Ribbentrop to head the German delegation to negotiate a naval contract. [37] Von Ribbentrop served both as Hitler`s extraordinary ambassador – plenipotentiary to Large (as part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and as head of an NSDAP organization called Ribbentrop, which competed with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Baron Konstantin von Neurath, the German Foreign Minister, initially objected, but changed his mind when he decided that the United Kingdom would never accept the 35:100 report; With Ribbentrop in mind, the mission was the best way to discredit his rival. [38] Part V of the 1919 Treaty of Versaille had severely limited the size and capabilities of the German armed forces. Germany was not allowed to make submarines, naval aviation and only six battleships dilapidated with terror; The total marine armed forces authorized by the Germans were six armored ships with no more than 10,000 tons of eviction, six light cruisers with no more than 6,000 tons of eviction, twelve destroyers of no more than 800 tons of eviction and twelve torpedoes.

[4] In the end, the United Kingdom`s response to the German approach was a diplomatic note that strongly challenged the German assertion that the United Kingdom would attempt to “encircle” Germany with hostile alliances. [70] The German denunciation and reports on the strengthening of German shipbuilding in June 1939, caused by Plan Z, were instrumental in convincing the Chamberlain government of the need to “maintain” Germany by building a “peace front” of Western and Eastern European states and to increase the Chamberlain government`s view in 1939 that German policy posed a threat to the United Kingdom. [71] Germany had much to gain from the signing of this agreement.
