The Chargé in Costa Rica (Martin) to the Acting Secretary of State

24. My telegram number 22, December 23, 3 p.m. Latest resolution proposed by conference provides substantially that pending [Page 179] diplomatic negotiations for their modification all existing treaties shall be binding upon federation and that future treaties growing out of contractual obligations of any one state shall require the sanction of the central government.

The text of the foregoing resolution has been communicated to the Government of Nicaragua for approval and will be embodied in the pact of union which according to reliable information will be signed this week irrespective of action of Nicaragua.
