The Deputy Chief of Staff for Plans, Department of the Army ( Bolté ) to the Chief of the Joint Staff, Brazilian Armed Forces ( Góes Monteiro )
Dear General Góes: I am gratified to learn from General Sibert that considerable progress has been made toward a firm agreement which will assure the closer cooperation between our respective countries both in hemisphere defense1 and in support of the United Nations’ action in Korea.
The current attitude of the United States with respect to these two subjects is reflected in the memoranda which are attached. I recognize that Brazil may wish to offer some additional suggestions and similarly, [Page 1225] after a more detailed study, my Government may wish to propose further suggestions or clarifications.
I understand that, if changes are desired by either Government, we are in agreement that these will be considered in Washington or in Rio de Janeiro by representatives to be designated by the two of us. After any such changes have been made, the documents can be put in final form for approval by the Governments.
I am happy that your visit has been so fruitful. It has been a privilege for me and the officers who have participated in the negotiations to have worked with you and your representatives. I wish you a pleasant journey home as well as continued progress in regaining your health.
