On 28 and 29 April 1938, Daladier met in London with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain to discuss the situation. Chamberlain, who could not see how Hitler could be prevented from completely destroying Czechoslovakia if that was his intention (which Chamberlain doubted), argued that Prague should be called upon to make territorial concessions to Germany. The French and British leaders believed that peace could only be saved by moving the German territories of the Sudetenland out of Czechoslovakia. Through the confiscation of Bohemia and Moravia, the Third Reich gained all the skilled workers and heavy industry that had been deployed there, as well as all the weapons of the Czechoslovakian army. During the Battle of France in 1940, about 25% of German weapons came from the protectorate. The Third Reich also won all of Czechoslovakia`s gold treasure, including gold held at the Bank of England. Of a total of 227 tonnes of gold found in salt mines after the war, only 18.4 tonnes were repatriated to Czechoslovakia in 1982, but most came from Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia was also forced to «sell» 648 million Czechoslovakian kronor before the war of war, a debt that was never repaid. [Citation required] After Poland learned that populated territories in Poland were to be transferred to Germany, Poland issued a note to the Czechoslovak government regarding the immediate conclusion of an agreement providing for the unquestionable occupation of Polish territory by Polish troops; An agreement on referendums is expected to follow in districts with a large proportion of the Polish population.
 While France and the United States relied on war prevention, Britain supported the emergency of the Sudeten Germans. Czechoslovakia was heavily dependent on the support of Great Britain and France, but it did not. On the contrary, Britain and France urged Czechoslovakia to yield to the demands of the Sudeten Germans. However, the Czechoslovakian government should not be incriminated. Czechoslovakian President Edvard Beneé even mobilized the army. Because the Germans wanted the Western powers to abandon the Czechs, they published in the press in August, the same month that Germany deployed 750,000 soldiers along the Czechoslovakian border. Later, at the meeting, a deception was agreed in advance to influence and pressure Chamberlain: one of Hitler`s accomplices entered the room to inform Hitler of other Germans killed in Czechoslovakia, and Hitler then shouted: «I will avenge each of them. The Czechs must be destroyed.  The meeting ended with Hitler`s refusal to make concessions to the demands of the Allies.
 Later that evening, Hitler was concerned that he had gone too far to put pressure on Chamberlain, and he called Chamberlain`s hotel suite to say that he would only accept the annexation of Sudetenland without plans in other areas, provided that Czechoslovakia began evacuating ethnic Chechens from the majority regions of Germany by 8 p.m. on September 26. After being pushed by Chamberlain, Hitler agreed to issue the ultimatum for October 1 (the same date on which Operation Green was to begin).  Hitler then told Chamberlain that it was a concession he wanted to make to the Prime Minister as a «gift», out of respect for the fact that Chamberlain was prepared to back down a little from his previous position.  Hitler added that after the annexation of the Sudetenland, Germany would no longer have territorial rights over Czechoslovakia and would enter into a collective agreement to guarantee the borders of Germany and Czechoslovakia.  In the spring of 1938, Hitler openly began to support calls by German spokesmen in the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia for closer relations with Germany.
