  • Description

    The present delicate phase in Cuban-American relations-together with Khrushchev' not anti-US rocket threat in support of Cuba-has caused anxiety not only in the USA but also in other American countries, and July 16 the Cuban swing to Russia was one of the subjects discussed at a Council meeting in Washington DC of the Organization of American States.

    July 18 the Organization unanimously approved a resolution calling for a meeting of western hemisphere Foreign Ministers to discuss the Cuba situation.

    At the UN Security Council meeting, New York, July 18, Cuba presented her case against "US economic aggression." USA' delegate counter-attacked and defended, and said the Cuban grievance should be presented before the OAS. Settlement of disputes by local bodies is officially favoured by UNO. An Argentina-Ecuador draft resolution proposed the Security Council defer considering the issue until a report on it was received from the OAS.

    Reactions among American countries to the Cuba-USA affair have included a note from Argentina to Cuba saying she is seriously concerned about the threat of Soviet intervention in the western hemisphere. The note received a very cool welcome in the Government controlled Havana press. Mexico is reported discussing an oil deal with Cuba.
