800.24/6–1545: Circular telegram

The Acting Secretary of State to the Diplomatic Representatives in the American Republics

The Department has written FEA14 suggesting that the Decentralization Plan for Export Control be liquidated in its entirety beginning October 1, 1945. The Executive Committee of FEA has the proposal under consideration and a decision is expected within a short time.

While it would be premature for you to notify the Foreign Office or the Country Agency of the proposed liquidation of the Decentralization plan, this information is forwarded to you because of the possibility that the Embassies of the other American republics here in Washington may learn of the proposal informally and transmit the information to their respective governments.

You will be notified promptly when a decision is reached.

  1. Foreign Economic Administration.
