Memorandum of Conversation, by the Under Secretary of State (Welles)

The British Ambassador called to see me this afternoon. The Ambassador said that the British Foreign Office desired him to let me know that they were most grateful for the suggestion I had made with regard to the Belize controversy between Great Britain and Guatemala and that instructions had been sent to the British Minister in Guatemala City to undertake conversations or negotiations with the Guatemalan Foreign Minister to see whether some compromise or some way out of the existing impasse with regard to the present British proposal might be found.
