The Chargé in Brazil ( Gordon ) to the Secretary of State

98. My 92, April 13, noon.22 Foreign Minister informed me today that the Argentine Ambassador has now delivered to him the notification in question but only orally.

Foreign Minister also informed me that he has received a note from the Chilean Government urging the Brazilian Government to save the joint mediation effort by participating therein but making no reference [Page 39] to the question of representation on the proposed economic committee.23

  1. Not printed.
  2. Telegram No. 104, April 24, 6 p.m., from the Chargé in Brazil contains the following rectification of this statement: “I now understand that the information given me by the Foreign Minister and reported in the second paragraph of my 98, April 17, 7 p.m., was inaccurate: only a telegraphic summary of the Chilean note had then been received and apparently that summary made no reference to the economic committee matter; the full note has now been received and I understand does cover that point.” (724.3415/4802)
