The engineer Ignacio Bonillas, appointed by Venustiano Carranza as Mexico’s Ambassador in United States, declared to the Mexican press that, while preserving the national dignity, a new conflict with United States would be prevented.

He issued these statements upon learning the answer of United States’ government to the peace initiative by Carranza, where United States expressed that it wouldn’t second the proposal of the Mexican President Elect, although it shared the objective. Bonillas –who was part of the Mexican commission, led by Luis Cabrera, which negotiated the retreat of the Punitive Expedition– declared that he would focus on reestablishing, in the most cordial terms possible, the relations between both countries and avoid a new conflict through all means.
