817.00/4–246: Airgram

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


A–116. I saw President Somoza at El Genízaro this morning. I conveyed to him all the information contained in the Department’s telegram no. 91 of March 25, 7 p.m., sent in reply to my Airgram A–88 of March 15, 1946.34

The President now understands the Department’s reply regarding Purposes 1 and 2.

He is satisfied with the reply on Purposes 3 and 4.

Purpose 5 he will reconsider after the audit of the accounts of the Inter-American Highway and the Kama Road.

He will know shortly where he stands with respect to Purpose 6 when the audit of the highway accounts just mentioned has been completed.

I am inclined to think the President will use Ambassador Sevilla to find an appropriate means of meeting the needs covered by Purposes 1 and 2.
