State Department communique regarding the Spanish Civil War:

The Government of the United States wishes to make clear that, in accordance with the Neutrality Acts, arms sales to both sides of the conflict presently being waged in Spain are banned, and shall remain so until such the conflict is concluded and the ban lifted by presidential order.

The United States additionally wishes to underscore that any party exterior to the conflict who intervenes militarily will be, at the discretion of the President, subject to the same halt in the export of arms and materiel as contributing to the constitution of a state of war in Spain.

Further, President Roosevelt wishes to make clear that he considers a moral embargo to be in place over all US trade with Spain which may further the prosecution of this conflict which falls outside the remit of the Neutrality Acts, and that he intends to seek from Congress at the soonest opportunity an amendment to the Neutrality Acts which will expand the definition of war materiel to levels necessary to preserve America's position relative to global peace.

Finally, the Government of the United States announces its intention to provide shipments of food on a purely humanitarian basis to Spain, and encourages like-minded nations to join with us in doing so.

We welcome and hail our Brazilian friends and neighbours, and pray that our two nations will continue to grow and develop together. We will, of course, examine our present visa policy, but we fear that our present policy may take time to correct. However we wish to underline that under the Immigration Act, there are no migration limits or caps on Latin Americans wishing to migrate to the United States.

Augusto Barcía Trelles, Minister of State
Spanish Republic

The Spanish Republic sends our sincere support for this treaty, a long-awaited move in restoring friendship between two nations. While as of late, the international community has made too few actions that decisively endorse peace and unity, this step -done between one of the world's most renowned democratic governments and our Soviet friends, long defenders of the rights of all- provides some reassurance that the world remains in reasonable hands.
