The Chargé in Uruguay (Reed) to the Secretary of State

104. The Minister of Foreign Affairs informs me that he has made a statement to the United Press regarding President Roosevelt’s recent declaration concerning the defence of this continent and that he said that he sympathized with the idea of increasing the moral and material solidarity of the peoples of America. With respect to a general agreement he would have to know its form in order to study the details. He added that at the moment his Government was not engaged in the study of any project therefor.
