The Ambassador in Argentina (Weddell) to the Secretary of State

199. From Braden. Paraguayan delegation has rejected regulations by note contending in detail that several provisions are not in accord with protocols and therefore require congressional ratification. The last paragraph, however, indicates willingness to consider measures to implement non-aggression pact so as to preserve quiet in the Chaco during remaining negotiations. At my request chairman of the Paraguayan delegation agreed to propose formula to accomplish this end. I expect him to do so shortly. [Braden.]
