The Secretary of State to the Minister in Colombia (Whitehouse)

No. 106

Sir: There is transmitted herewith for your information a copy of an aide-mémoire and enclosures which was today transmitted to the Chargé d’Affaires ad interim of Colombia,14b in regard to the proposed trade agreement between the United States and Colombia.

Although it is expected that the agreement will be negotiated and signed in Washington, you are nevertheless requested to familiarize yourself with the proposals contained in the aide-mémoire and enclosures and to take an early occasion to ascertain the reaction of the Colombian Government with respect to them. This Government is anxious to proceed rapidly with the negotiations in order that, if possible, the agreement may be submitted to the Colombian Congress before the adjournment of the special session.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Francis B. Sayre
  1. Supra.
