The Ambassador in Nicaragua ( Warren ) to the Secretary of State

707. This mission has studied Dept’s A–302, October 28 [26] and Deptel 436, November 1335 re program for Nicaragua. It has no objection to program on basis that Honduras, Dominican Republic and Haiti are in same class. The considerations on which the program is based are also satisfactory. Embassy is of opinion that War Dept aircraft program for Nicaragua is satisfactory.

My principal concern is that no help whatever now be given Nicaragua (see my 701, November 15) that can be interpreted by govt or people as being aid to Somoza in present political crisis.

  1. Telegram 436 not printed; it requested a reply to airgram A–302.
