72 Evatt to Bruce
Cablegram 34 CANBERRA, 10 March 1944
For Bruce from Evatt. Your telegram No.32[A]. 
Please inform Chilean Ambassador that the Australian Government will welcome the appointment of a Chilean Consul-General de Carriere in Australia, and will consider after his posting here the question of diplomatic designation for him. We shall also be glad, to consider, in due course, the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Chile and Australia.
2. I must point out that your communication to the Ambassador reported in the third paragraph of your telegram under reference does not express accurately the views or policy of the Government, which is certainly not opposed to the establishment of diplomatic relations with any country with which we have common interests.
Indeed because of contiguous interests in Pacific and for other reasons we hope soon to complete diplomatic exchange with Fighting France.
