The Ambassador in Peru ( Moore ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 10:10 p.m.]
73. My 72.30 The following note addressed to you has just been handed me by the Minister for Foreign Affairs:
“Lima, July 11, 1928.
Mr. Secretary: Through His Excellency the Ambassador of the United States in Lima I have had the honor to receive the important communication of Your Excellency dated yesterday in which, referring to the growth of more friendly feeling between Peru and Chile and to the conviction which Your Excellency entertains that beneficial results for both countries will be obtained from the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between their respective Governments, Your Excellency suggests that the Government of Peru signify whether it is disposed to reestablish those relations and is willing to appoint a representative in Santiago at an early mutually convenient date.[Page 652]
In reply I have the honor to state to Your Excellency that in deference to your friendly invitation my Government is disposed to reestablish diplomatic relations with the Chilean Government and to appoint someone to represent it in Santiago on the date which is to be fixed by common agreement.
In thus acting upon the suggestion of Your Excellency I avail myself of this opportunity to repeat to the Secretary of State the assurances of my most high and distinguished consideration.
Signed, Pedro Jose Rada y Gamio.”
