674. All Ambassadors met today at residence of Papal Nuncio. A committee was formed of the following Ambassadors: Papal Nuncio, Brazilian, Argentine, Chilean, Spanish and US.

We called on General Cantillo and asked that he give safe conduct to all asylees as soon as possible. General Cantillo agreed. Cantillo has instructed Colonel Martinez Mora at Campo Columbia to fly all asylees out as soon as possible.

It is General Cantillo’s intention to try and preserve law and order until the provisional government is ready to turn over authority to whoever should have it.
