The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Brazil ( Daniels )

u.s. urgent

1320. Your 1718, Oct. 7. You may tell Cunha Machado informally that in proposed bilateral with US, Dutch have asked for number of routes radiating from Curaçao and CAB is having great difficulty weighing the justification for such routes.

For your background info US international services are on routes connecting homeland with countries with which US has traffic flow. While grateful for Brazilian consultation we hope Brazil will answer Dutch without indicating its decision influenced by us.
