The Ambassador in Venezuela ( Corrigan ) to the Secretary of State

89. Department’s circular telegram April 29, 10 p.m. The Minister of Foreign Affairs9 informs me that Uruguay proposed to the Venezuelan [Page 50] Government an informal statement to the Spanish Government similar to that suggested by the Department. He stated that Venezuela was firmly opposed to any such gesture because it was not only useless but imprudent since a move to mix in Spanish affairs might open the door for Spain to interfere in the affairs of Venezuela.
