Buenos Aires Conference, 1936

   Concerned about the possible impact of conflict in Europe on the western hemisphere, Franklin D. Roosevelt called for an Inter-American Conference for the Maintenance of Peace, which met in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the Buenos Aires Conference in December 1936. In his speech at the conference, Roosevelt reaffirmed the “Good NeighborPolicy outlined in his inaugural address and underlined the end of United States’s unilateral action in the region with a promise that the nations of the western hemisphere would consult with one another for their mutual safety and good. His attempts to reach agreement not to support fascism failed, as Argentina had strong links with the German regime. Participants did agree on a common policy of neutrality in the event of conflict between any two of them.
