811.20 (D) Regulations/2921: Telegram

The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Peru ( McGurk )

150. Reference your telegram No. 235, June 21, 1 p.m. The Peruvian Decree is very gratifying to the Department.

The Department has requested authority from the Administrator of Export Control to issue general licenses to Peru. They will be issued promptly upon receipt of authority and you will be notified accordingly.

It is noted that many of the items listed in the Decree are strategic materials of which there is a shortage in this country and it should be pointed out that even if general licenses are issued for these items their exportation will still be subject to priorities.
