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
