The Secretary of State to the Minister in Ecuador (Long)

162. Your 248, October 26, 4 p.m. The Department assumes that the Ecuadoran Government would not enter into any new agreement with Sedta in view of its assurance to this Government to eliminate Sedta. This Government is, of course, willing to assist Panagra in providing air mail and other services at as low a cost as is consistent with sound and continuing operations and the Department is confident that proposals which are being made by Panagra will, all things considered, be advantageous to the Ecuadoran Government.
