The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Brazil (Caffery)

3032. Your telegram 3782, September 23, 2 p.m.32 The Department wants to clarify its telegram 2795 of September 22nd, midnight,33 in the sense that it has no intention of taking any steps to block an international air service desired by the Brazilian Government. The Department does not believe that this Government has any justification to prevent the Brazilian Government from fostering international air services and furthermore believes that any attempt on our part to do so would probably have serious consequences to our general relations with Brazil.

In connection with your expected recommendation for delisting Condor, the Department assumes you are satisfied with your control over Proclaimed List travel and cargo and that you believe censorship is adequate. (Your 4045, October 7, 6 p.m.32) This is especially important now that the Buenos Aires service is resumed, as we are not at all satisfied that the local Argentine Condor organization is entirely clean.

In the foregoing connection, reference is made to your A–284 of September 14, 10 p.m. [a.m.],32 and especially Ambassador Armour’s telegram to you of October 7, noon.32
