I note that the proposed additional article to the basic Agreement, as set forth in my note of February 18, 1944, is acceptable to your Government provided it is amended by adding the following words "during the present war emergency". It is also noted that the Gov- ernment of Peru desires that the Agreement be extended only for a period of two years and that the following language be added to Title I Article 2 of the basic Agreement: "Any member of the Mission may be recalled by the Govern- ment of the United States after the expiration of two years of service during peace time and at any moment during war time, in which case another member shall be furnished to replace him." It is inferred, and is the understanding of this Government, that the Peruvian Government's request contemplates also that in the same way the title "Minister of Marine and Aviation" shall be changed to "Minister of Aeronautics". I am pleased to inform you that the proposed changes are accept- able to this Government with the exception of the proposed addition to Title I Article 2, which the Navy Department is of the opinion is already covered by Title IV Article 17 of the basic Agreement. 54 Stat. 235 .
