Language of Materials
In a few cases where multiple visits to one country (or continent, in the case of Africa), or visits relating to a particular policy area, such as Europe, had been brought together, the purpose of the files was judged to have changed from just being a brief for a visit, to being more to do with foreign policy, and in these cases the files have been placed in Foreign Affairs (KNNK 10) or European Union (KNNK 8). A further sub-series of invitations which were refused have been disposed of.
DateText: Dates are mainly those of the event to which NK was invited, rather than the date of the actual correspondence.
