Background: The American Under Secretary of State for Latin American Affairs Mr. Terence Todman, who arrived in Buenos Aires on Sunday (14 August), has been having talks with the Argentina leader General Jorge Videla. It's Mr. Todman's second stop in a tour of South America countries.
SYNOPSIS: Government House has remained tight lipped about the substance of the discussions. Before meeting General Videla, Mr. Todman told newsmen that one of his takes would concern subjects of mutual interest and to explain President Carter's views on those subjects. Relations between Argentina and the United States have grown cool over differences on human rights. President Carter announced earlier this year that he was reducing military assistance to Argentina because of allegations that they had violated human rights.
Although the human rights issue will be a major topic of concern during his talks with General Videla, Mr. Todman will be anxious to smooth over the rift caused by the issue. Mr. Todman will also visit Paraguay and Chile before flying back to Washington on saturday (20 August).
