U.S. Government is Asked to Seek Guarantees Against Anti-jewish Action in Bolivia

The State Department was asked today not to recognize the new Bolivian Government until it guarantees that it will not embark on an anti-Jewish policy. Members of the National Revolutionary Party, which now controls the Bolivian Government, have in the past advocated violent anti-Jewish measures.

The request came from Mexico City from Jose Antonio Arze, leader of the Bolivian Leftist Revolutionary party. In his message to the State Department, Arze denied that he was associated with the new Bolivian regime.
