The Ambassador in Uruguay ( Dawson ) to the Secretary of State

517. Department’s circular telegram December 7, 6 a.m. [10 p.m.?] Oral communication regarding Japanese aggression has been communicated to Guani63 who will give me the requested expression of the views of the Uruguayan Government somewhat later. For the time being he asked me to advise the Department that Uruguay considers itself already solidly with the United States and is consulting other governments with a view to making this solidarity effective throughout the continent. He mentioned in particular consultation with Brazil and Argentina.
