The Ambassador in Argentina (Braden) to the Secretary of State

1090. Foreign Minister in press conference this afternoon said re Secretary’s statement yesterday47 that Argentina will comply faithfully with all obligations “as it has done so far”. Any doubts as to this arise from incomplete understanding of Argentina’s situation. He continued briefly outlining revolutionary govt.’s program saying first stage of work which was process of purification, had been completed and second stage, return to normality, is now being undertaken. Govt. is transitory in character and democratic in inspiration. Any judgements to contrary are unjust as history will prove.
