The Ambassador in Chile (Philip) to the Secretary of State

67. Department’s 41, October 29, 3 p.m. The Under Secretary of Foreign Affairs informs me that his Government has requested Ambassador Trucco11 today to ascertain the Department’s views as to the possibility of difficulties arising with the new Ecuadoran Government in the matter of the pending boundary dispute between Ecuador and Peru.

Apart from this uncertainty the Government of Chile entertains no objection which would delay an immediate recognition of the new Government. Its advices as to the stability of the new Government are all that could be desired and it views with satisfaction the decision to retain in office the Foreign Minister who served in the Paez Cabinet.

  1. Manuel Trucco, Chilean Ambassador in the United States.
