The Minister in Guatemala ( Whitehouse ) to the Secretary of State

63 bis. Minister of Foreign Affairs has just called to inform me that the Guatemalan Government had received a telegram from the military junta of Salvador stating that the Assembly had been convoked to take cognizance of the resignation of ex-President Araujo and to elect his successor.

The Minister added that the Guatemalan Government would adhere strictly to the terms of the treaty of 19235 and in no case would take any action except in agreement with the United States.
