The Secretary of State to the Embassy in Nicaragua
151. During past few weeks Dept has received many Nicaraguans representing various parties. In all conversations Dept has made it extremely clear that this govt does not and has not advocated that any party either abstain from or cooperate in the Constituent elections (Reurtel 267, June 3055).
Furthermore, Dept has not made any statement as to possible recognition of any govt emanating from Constituent Assembly (reurtel 266, June 30). Obviously we cannot commit ourselves as to future action.
