The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Peru (Pawley)

747. Proclaimed List press release for publication after 9 PM, July 28, will include:

“The names of a considerable [number?] of persons and enterprises in Chile and Peru have been deleted in the current supplement. These deletions are possible because of the effective action taken by the Chilean and Peruvian Govts to eliminate Axis enterprises and because the laws of these countries are deemed adequate to control deleted persons whose activities still require supervision. With some exceptions, the deletions in these countries do not indicate that continued control by the Chilean and Peruvian Govts is unnecessary; on the contrary it means that the laws of these two countries are deemed to be adequate to control the activities and assets of undesirable persons which have been deleted.”
