The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Argentina (Armour)

914. Your 1115, June 12, midnight. The Department agrees that it would be embarrassing to the Embassy to ask the Argentine Government at this time to collaborate in the preparation of the essential requirements reports for 1943. However, the Department requires the data requested, and it is hoped that the Embassy will obtain the effective cooperation of the American business community in preparing the desired reports.

Copies of memoranda discussing decentralization of export control have been sent the Embassy for its comment, and it is hoped that it will be possible during the visit of Lord, Peurifoy and Ravndal to work out an administrative routine within your recommendations.
