The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Costa Rica (Washington)

575. Retel 644 [664], December 12, 5 p.m. Although Export-Import Bank withdrew Amendatory Agreement of September 28 in letter of December 5 to Costa Rican Ambassador which he refused to accept and contents of which he did not transmit to his Government, Export-Import Bank will comply with, terms of Amendatory Agreement upon approval thereof by Costa Rican Congress and Costa Rican President which action has apparently been taken in good faith. Export-Import Bank will probably not grant any further extension after expiration of period defined in Amendatory Agreement.
