HC Deb 23 November 1960 vol 630 cc1111-2
27. Mr. Zilliacus

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will draw the attention of the Security Council under Article 34 of the Charter to the camp in Guatemala where insurgents are being trained and armed with the proclaimed intention to attack Cuba as a circumstance tending to affect the good relations between nations and capable of endangering peace.

Mr. Heath

No, Sir.

Mr. Zilliacus

Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the camp in Guatemala is being conducted on a scale far beyond the financial resources of the Guatemalan Government, that the whole incident bears a striking resemblance to the intervention which set up the present Government in Nicaragua, with the help of the United States, and that President-Elect Kennedy has advocated a policy of intervention of this sort? Will he please do something before the situation blows up in our faces?

Mr. Heath

I have seen Press reports of a similar nature, and I have also seen denials by the President of Guatemala of the truth of these reports.

Mr. John Hall

Will my right hon. Friend draw the attention of the Security Council to the interference by Cuba in the affairs of South American Governments?
