The Chargé in Bolivia (Adam) to the Secretary of State


555. Following is an interim report on progress in attaining collective action by Diplomatic Corps in pursuance instructions contained Deptel 329.

Immediately saw British Minister yesterday afternoon and this morning we called on Dean who is consulting other Chiefs of Mission individually and expects to call a meeting this evening or tomorrow. Our activity is somewhat handicapped by numerous official functions being held for Trujillo.20

My personal opinion, or at least hope, is that Chiefs of Mission, with exception of Argentina and Paraguay, will look favorably upon these instructions.

  1. José Vicente Trujillo, Ecuadoran Minister for Foreign Affairs.
