The Third Secretary of Embassy in Spain (Wendelin) to the Secretary of State

X–34. Department’s telegram No. 70, August 5, 4 p.m. Diplomatic Corps meeting today discussed protection nationals of those countries whose missions are thought to be inadequately protected or unable to house their nationals. It was agreed that the Chilean Ambassador as Acting Dean should request authorization from the Government to take over a large apartment building near the British Embassy in which all those nationals would be housed and be assured of adequate protection. I believe this arrangement if put into effect will solve the problem of possible admission diplomatic representatives and nationals of other countries into this Embassy.
