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

147. The Under Secretary’s telegram No. 73, May 16, 6 p.m. I have just seen the Minister for Foreign Affairs and conveyed to him the substance of the telegram under reference. Doctor Cantilo assured me that his Government realized the importance of unity on the part of all the American Republics, particularly at this time and stated that they would immediately convey to the Uruguayan Government approval of the Uruguayan text. Dr. Cantilo appeared to be entirely satisfied with regard to the point mentioned in the last sentence of the penultimate paragraph of the Under Secretary’s telegram.

The Uruguayan Ambassador, who was waiting to see the Minister for Foreign Affairs when I left, has since confirmed this to me, adding that Cantilo said they were telegraphing the Panamanian Government withdrawing their own proposal in the interest of unity on the part of all the American Republics.

Repeated to Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo.
