Arbenz sent his foreign minister to speak to Ambassador Puerifoy, offering conciliatory measures to begin negotiations with Washington and ward off the invasion.
(Jon Lee Anderson; Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life)

I suppose I should read it as follows:
'offering conciliatory measures [in order] to begin negotiations'.

Is it so?

Thanks.
