Factors in Economic Relations With Argentina



IRcleascd to the press May 17]



111 relation to the announcement made today
by the Export-Import Bank of a credit to assist
in the liquidation of commercial arrears owed by
Arfjentine interests, the Department of State calls
attention to certain factors in connection with the
general economic relations between the United
States and Argentina.

A basic element in the over-all framework of
United States foreign relations is the inter-Ameri-
can system. The association of 21 sovereign,
juridically equal nations, whose recognition of
their identity of interest develo])ed through gen-
erations of loyal effort and confirmed in the ]iower-
fid instrument of the Organization of American
States, has come to l)e acknowledged by the world
as a unicjue achievement in the evolution of inter-
national relations. To preserve and strengthen
this structure is one of the most important tasks of
the Department of State.

That task has multi])le aspects, an imixirf ant one
of wliich is maintaining healthy trade relations.
History testifies to the fact that it is not by formal
alliances or the broad sti'okes of di])lom:u'y alone
but to a far greater extent by the continuous fi-ee
exchange of people and ideas and goods that na-
tions themselves forge the bonds of friendship and
respect that give substance to acts f)f state.

It is in this context that the Department regai'ds
the anuoimcement of the Ex]iorl -Import Bank.
The credits i-eferred to shoidd be envisaged as an
im])ortaut step in the ])rogress towarcl (he res-
toration of normal conunei'cial and financial rela-
tions between the United States and the Argentine
Kepublic. It marks the end of ii preliminary
))eriod of cH'oi't by both (JoNcrmnents foi' the
solution of |)roblems and it ojieiis the way for
carrying forward the ]ii-ocess of normalization by
further cooiM-rative action. Tliere ai-e still very
gi'eat problems ahead of the two countries, ami it
would be misleading io minimize their seriousness.
