Alliance For Progress - Punta del Este Conference - August 1961

C. Douglas Dillon

Latin America from Newstalgia

Here is a Press conference from August 22, 1961 featuring Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Treasury Secretary C. Douglas Dillon, giving an outline of the events at the Punta del Este Conference in Uruguay.
