710 Consultation 3/21: Telegram

The Ambassador in Peru ( Norweb ) to the Secretary of State

676. Department’s circular telegram December 9, 5 p.m. When I handed to the Minister of Foreign Affairs8 the aide-mémoire regarding the consultative meeting of Ministers for Foreign Affairs of the American Republics, he gave no indication of Peru’s reply but stated that the Peruvian Ambassador at Washington would receive instructions.

The Minister was concerned that the question of the Peru-Ecuador boundary dispute9 would be raised at the meeting. My Argentine and Brazilian colleagues and I plan to see the Foreign Minister tomorrow to ask for his specific suggestions about what we might be able to do so that definitive agreement upon the settlement of the boundary dispute might be reached before the date of the consultative meeting.
