The Minister in Panama (Gonzalez) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 6.]
Sir: Referring to the Department’s Instruction No. 480 dated February 6, 1933, and to subsequent correspondence concerning the desire of the Department to reach an agreement with the Panamanian Government with respect to the interpretation to be applied by both Governments to the Convention on Commercial Aviation, adopted at Habana on February 20, 1928, I have the honor to enclose copies of [Page 640]this Legation’s Note No. 817, dated September 19, 1933, as well as copies and translations of Foreign Office Note D. D. No. 1788, dated October 23, 1933 concerning this subject.
The Legation will assume, in the absence of contrary instructions, that this exchange of notes covers the desired agreement on the interpretation of the Habana Convention. The summary of the aviation regulations of the Republic were not received and the Department has already received copies and translation of Decree No. 150 of August 23, 1932,34 to which the Foreign Office Note refers (see Despatch No. 1234 dated September 14, 193234).
