The Ambassador in Colombia (Lane) to the Secretary of State


762. Department’s 645, June 3, 8 p.m. President Santos said to me today that the proposal suggested in Department’s telegram seems entirely acceptable. He promised to submit it to the Cabinet Monday or Tuesday and would inform me immediately regarding final decision which he felt would be favorable although reservation had been suggested by one Cabinet Minister that tankers should be under Colombian registry and should be used exclusively for inter-American trade.
