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

3783. Your 4572, September 25, 3 p.m. You may inform Aranha that of course Brazil’s interests are being given full consideration in the current approach to Mediterranean matters. I feel sure however that Aranha will appreciate the circumstances which render it necessary for the present to restrict the Committee as planned. When the situation is clarified provision for representation of Brazil and of a number of other Governments and Governmental organizations will be given consideration. Meanwhile the President is instructing the United States member of the Commission to bear in mind Brazil’s present and future interest in Mediterranean developments.
