710 Consultations (3)/43

Memorandum by the Adviser on Political Relations (Duggan) to the Under Secretary of State (Welles)

Mr. Welles: Dr. Rowe telephoned to state that he has received a telegram6 addressed to the Chairman of the Governing Board from the Chilean Government requesting that a consultative meeting be called.

I told Dr. Rowe that I expected our letter would be in his hands in the next hour or so and I suggested that he circulate to the members of the Governing Board the Chilean and United States requests at the same time.

Dr. Rowe agreed.

I think that the Secretary should state at his press conference that this Government has made such a request since there is intense newspaper speculation.
