U.S. President John Kennedy wound up a visit to Florida (southeastern U.S.) by making a major foreign policy speech on Latin American affairs. He spoke Monday night (18 November) to the Inter-American Press Association in Miami Beach. The Association is a group of North and South American newspaper editors.
The President indirectly attacked Argentina's revocation of oil contracts with U.S. companies when he said that "no nation should act within its own borders so as to violate the rights of others under accepted principals of international law." He was sharply critical of military coups d'etat and said the U.S. stood ready to assist Cuba once that nation's sovereignty had been restored under a non-Communist government.
Our film shows two excerpts from his speech. Here is text of those excerpts:
