814.24/9–1746

The Acting Secretary of State to the Guatemalan Ambassador ( García Granados )

Excellency: I have the honor to acknowledge your note of September 17, 1946,10 in which you request certain changes in the lists of equipment to be furnished Guatemala in final settlement of the mutual aid agreement between our two countries.

In reply I regret to inform you that my Government considers such changes inconsistent with the proposals contained in the note of May 23, 1946, and accepted in Your Excellency’s note of June 7, 1946.11 Accordingly it is not in a position to comply with your request.

However, there remains the possibility that after fulfillment of the present agreement and upon completion of the interim program further equipment may be made available for sale to the Government of Guatemala.

Accept [etc.]

Dean Acheson
