399. My telegram no. 387, March 20, noon. The Argentine and United States Delegations had a final meeting this morning at which Admiral Richardson made the following statement:

“The United States Delegation has welcomed the discussions with the Argentine Delegation regarding certain military questions and has appreciated the spirit of understanding and comradeship of the [Page 387] Argentine Delegation which is traditional between the Navies of the two countries. It is understood that the arrangements discussed between the two Delegations are to be held in abeyance pending their further consideration by our respective Governments.”

The Argentine Delegation is leaving Washington tomorrow and has reservations to leave on Wednesday’s plane for Buenos Aires.
