The Chargé in Mexico (Boal) to the Secretary of State

210. Department’s circular June 17, 10 a.m. General Hay7 has given me the following oral replies.

The Mexican Government is agreeable to an immediate consultation on the part of the Foreign Ministers of the American Republics or their representatives.
The Mexican Government agrees that Habana should be selected as the seat of the urgent consultation meeting.
General Hay states that the Mexican Government will be prepared to go at the earliest date convenient to the other republics. He assumes that as others are much farther away than Mexico the meeting can hardly take place before 8 days from now. However, all that the Mexican Government would require is a reasonable time in which to get a representative to Habana. General Hay has asked me to inquire whether Secretary of State Hull will attend the meeting and would appreciate early information on this point.
  1. Eduardo Hay, Mexican Minister for Foreign Affairs.
