The Consul at Geneva (Gilbert) to the Secretary of State

173. The Secretariat issued last evening a communication from the Chilean representative40 in which it is stated, “My Government is of the opinion that in view of the recent events which have put an end to the war between Ethiopia and Italy, it would be proper to discontinue the economic, financial and other measures decided upon in connection with this conflict”.

In view of this communication being in terms of a proposal it is not known here whether Chile has actually discontinued the sanctions measures.
