710 Conference W And PW/1–2245: Telegram

The Ambassador in Paraguay (Beaulac) to the Secretary of State

54. Your circular January 19, midnight. I have not encouraged Chiriani26 to submit specific requests for economic aid during the conference at Mexico. Paraguay may be expected to introduce or support measures capable of continental application which would be helpful to Paraguay such as assistance in construction of Pan American Highway, additional gasoline quotas for highways newly constructed with American financial aid and assistance to immigrants. These topics were mentioned on pages 3 and 4 of my despatch 440, January 9.27

If other countries are being encouraged to present specific requests at Mexico City I should like to be promptly informed so that Paraguay may have the opportunity of doing the same.

  1. Horacio Chiriani, Minister for Foreign Affairs.
