The Chargé in Colombia (Dawson) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received 9:05 p.m.]
62. Minister for Foreign Affairs is instructing Lozano10 to approach Department regarding possible presentation to Seventh Pan American Conference of fourth step proposed in President Roosevelt’s disarmament message May 16.11 His interest is obviously in securing general Pan American commitment not to send armed forces across frontiers. I pointed out that fourth step was suggested as a corollary to fulfillment of three preceding proposals made in message and expressed doubt as to possibility of singling it out for action.
