839.154/102: Airgram

The Minister in the Dominican Republic (Warren) to the Secretary of State

A–35. Reference Department’s airgram No. A–22. In a conversation with me this morning President Trujillo gave assurances of his enthusiastic support of the project. With respect to the particular points mentioned by the Department, the President said that he would be glad at any time to issue a decree establishing free ports of entry for transit goods, and that he would guarantee that such goods would not be subjected to any taxes or charges whatsover by the Dominican Government. The President also places the entire rolling stock of the Dominican Republic at our disposal for this project, and assured me that all of the other resources and facilities of his Government would be available to us.
