The Chairman of the Governing Board of the Pan American Union (Hull) to the Chilean Minister for Foreign Affairs (Bossetti)

I wish to acknowledge Your Excellency’s telegram of December 9, 1941 by which you request that, in view of the unjustified aggression of which the United States has been the victim by a non-American power, the American Republics be consulted with regard to the desirability of convoking as soon as possible a Third Meeting of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the American Republics. In accordance with the procedure established in Resolution XVII adopted at the consultative meeting at Habana, 1940, the request of the Government [Page 124] of Chile has today been brought to the attention of the Governments of the other American Republics with a request for their observations and suggestions.

Accept [etc.]
