On December 24, 1961, President Kennedy met with Arturo Frondizi, President of Argentina. They also had lunch together. The meeting took place at JFK's Dad's residence in Palm Beach, Florida.
Earlier in August, Mr. Frondizi had initiated negotiations between JFK & Che Guevara of Cuba. This was at the Inter-American Economic and Social Council summit in Montevideo. This "secret" meeting took place at the presidential residence.
President Fondizi asked Guevara to act as an intermediary between JFK & Cuban Premier Fidel Castro. This proposed meeting, however, never came about.
I want to wish all visitors to JFK+50 a very Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays and thanks so much for reading my blog.
