The Minister in Uruguay ( Grant-Smith ) to the Secretary of State

5. Interview given to correspondent of the Buenos Aires Critica by the Uruguayan Minister for Foreign Affairs which appears in La Mariana this morning follows the same line as that by the Argentine Minister for Foreign Affairs reported in my telegram number 2, January 10, 4 p.m. Blanco87 speaks of remote contingency of Uruguay being asked to aid which would take form of support of and enlargement of powers of arbitration; a policy of watchful waiting and complete reserve will be followed by his Government. Editorial comment merely points out accord in views of Uruguay and Argentine Governments.

  1. Dr. Juan Carlos Blanco, Uruguayan Minister for Foreign Affairs.
