The vote was 12 in favor, three against and six abstaining. Sponsors of the measure had conceded they were two votes short of the two-thirds majority needed to end the decade-old quarantine against Fidel Castro’s Communist regime. The proposal was sponsored by Venezuela, Costa Rica and Colombia. Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay came to Quito committed to opposing repeal of the embargo. Nicaragua, Brazil and the U. S. announcer! early in the meeting that they would abstain. “Still Meddling” Cuba's supporters kept saying they were sure of victory until Monday; then Haiti and Guatemala announced they would also abstain because they felt Castro was still meddling in the domestic affairs of his neighbors. When the vote came, Bolivia abstained too. Brazil, Chile and Uruguay proposed a recess “until such a time as the situation ripened a bp. more.” Diplomatic sources said they suggested another meeting in three months, i The repeal proposal’s three sponsors asked the abstaining nations to try to draft a resolution satisfactory to themselves which would still enable the sanctions to be lifted.
