710 Conference (W and PW)/1–2345: Telegram

The Ambassador in Chile ( Bowers ) to the Secretary of State

102. Fernandez28 inquired whether point No. IV in the agenda contained in Padilla’s invitation of January 11 replaces No. IV in the agenda contained in Department’s circular January 5, 3 p.m.

I said that while there seemed to be no doubt that this was case, since as stated in Department’s circular telegram of January 11, Department did not intend to prepare a formal agenda nor to correlate suggestions and amplify the tentative agenda already transmitted as the Department believed that this was a task which should be undertaken by Mexico in consultation with the other American Republics.

Nevertheless, I would be grateful for early telegraphic reply which would enable me to assure Fernandez on this point.

  1. Joaquín Fernández Fernández, Minister for Foreign Affairs.
