The Chargé in Spain (Bonsal) to the Secretary of State


718. In course of conversation yesterday Acting Under Secretary Foreign Affairs told me that Spanish Foreign Office after considerable discussion had decided not to raise Tangier question thru diplomatic channels on expiration 6 months’ period of provisional regime. Acting Under Secretary, who is Aguirre de Career, an expert on Tangier, said he had favored bringing matter up but that Minister7 had overruled him.

Sent Tangier Paris London by courier.
