The Chargé in Mexico ( Norweb ) to the Secretary of State
[Received June 6.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Embassy’s despatch No. 1153 of February 24, 1934,18 with which was enclosed a copy of a letter [Page 507] addressed by the Embassy on that date to the Foreign Office containing the substance of the Department’s instruction No. 268 of February 17, 1934,19 regarding the interpretation of Article IV of the Habana Convention on Commercial Aviation.20
There is transmitted herewith, in copy and translation, a letter from the Foreign Office dated May 24, 1934, on this subject, transcribing the views of the Ministry of Communications, in which the suggestion is made that in order to regulate private flights of an international character the most practicable means is to conclude an economic agreement between the two Governments which shall result in the publication by each country of identic regulations, this procedure being suggested in order to avoid a delay inherent in the conclusion of a convention or treaty.
The Mexican Foreign Office in its letter states that it will be glad to receive the opinion of the United States Government in the premises.
