Editorial Note

On January 16, 1951, the United States and Chile signed at Santiago the following Point IV technical assistance agreements:

1)
General Agreement for Technical Cooperation, entered into force July 27, 1951. The agreement was transmitted to the Department of State under cover of despatch 806, from Santiago, February 14, 1951, not printed (825.00–TA/2–1451). For text, see United States Treaties and Other International Agreements (UST), volume 3, page 390, or Department of State Treaties and Other International Acts Series (TIAS) No. 2403. For a press release dated January 16, see the Department of State Bulletin, February 5, 1951, page 219.
2)
Technical Agreement for a Cooperative Program of Agriculture and Livestock, entered into force January 16, 1951. Minor editorial changes in the text required the re-signing of the agreement; it was transmitted to the Department of State also under cover of despatch 806. For text, see 3 UST (pt. 2) 2630, or TIAS No. 2430.
3)
Technical Agreement for a Cooperative Program in Education, which never entered into effect. Certain Catholic groups and political elements in Chile expressed vigorous opposition to the agreement, alleging in part that it would interfere with Chile’s sovereign rights. By a note dated April 3, 1951, delivered to the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs on April 4, the United States abrogated the agreement in the manner specified therein. A copy of the note was transmitted to the Department of State under cover of despatch 1039, from Santiago, April 4, 1951, not printed (825.00–TA/4–451).
