There is also a copy of the Zimmerman Telegram which was intercepted by the United Kingdom and it gave reasons for the United States to participate in the First World War. The telegram was a request from the Foreign Secretary of the German Empire, Arthur Zimmerman, to his ambassador in Mexico instructing him to make a proposal to make an alliance with Mexican Government to make a common front against the U.S.

También existe una copia del telegrama Zimmermann, el cual fue interceptado por el Reino Unido el cual dio motivos para que los Estados Unidos participaran en la primera guerra mundial. El telegrama fue una solicitud del Secretario de Asuntos Exteriores, Arthur Zimmermann a su embajador en México para que este hiciera una propuesta de alianza con México para formar un frente común contra los Estados Unidos.

 

Mexico denied the existence of such telegram, and that made leverage to make negotiations with the U.S. The rest is history.

México negó la existencia del telegrama mismo que le dio ventaja para hacer negociaciones con los Estados Unidos. El resto es historia.
