The Ambassador in Cuba ( Guggenheim ) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received 12:30 p.m.]
120. My telephone conversation with Walter C. Thurston.31 After an informal conversation with the Cuban Secretary of State, he informed me that he would instruct the Cuban Chargé in the United States to withdraw the note regarding an arms embargo32 because the revolutionary situation had changed. The Cuban Secretary of State understands that shipments of arms from the United States are being prohibited as effectively as they would be under a formal proclamation of an arms embargo.
