The Chargé in Argentina (Wadsworth) to the Secretary of State


209. My No. 207 of September 8.5 I am informed by the Minister for Foreign Affairs that the Government of Argentina does not consider that the moment for extending recognition to the present Bolivian Government has arrived. The present Junta of three persons is a temporary form of government which performs the functions of the President of the Republic. The Government of Argentina understands that in accordance with the Constitution new elections will be held, and believes it advisable to defer recognition [Page 381] until a definite government has been established. On this aspect of the question the Minister for Foreign Affairs will be glad to receive an expression of the views of the Government of the United States before taking action in any sense.
