The Minister in Bolivia ( Jenkins ) to the Secretary of State

77. Referring to the Department’s circular telegram of April 29, 10 p.m., Bolivian Minister for Foreign Affairs10 tells me he has already indicated informally to Spanish authorities advisability of refraining from actively supporting Axis Powers and he does not feel it would be helpful for him to take further action individually in this matter.

However he suggests that joint action would be more helpful and he is prepared to consider such a plan if other Latin American countries are of similar view.
