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


A–422. When I saw President González on the afternoon of December 10, 1948, he told me that the Argentine Ambassador, Dr. J. Isaac Arriola, had been to see him at the request of President Perón. The Ambassador told President González that President Perón was aware of the rumors and stories going around regarding Argentina’s aggressive intentions against Paraguay and that he wanted Sr. González to know that there was no truth in them. President Perón is the friend of President González and will not permit anyone to foment from Argentina outbreaks against Paraguay. President González told Ambassador Arriola that he was glad to have the Perón assurances because he (González) had also heard the rumors and stories.
