The Secretary of State to the Minister in Costa Rica ( Sack )

30. Your despatch No. 5, October 20, and telegram 34, October 28, 3 p.m.16 As the Department stated in its telegram No. 44 of November 22, [1932] 7 p.m.,17 to the Legation in Guatemala the decision in the matter of the denunciation, modification or continuance of the Treaty of Peace and Amity appears to be one for the Central American Governments themselves to determine. We feel that Costa Rica has freely exercised its right to denounce the Treaty and therefore do not desire that you should even unofficially suggest that it rescind its action or otherwise indicate what course of action it should pursue with respect to the Treaty.
