We will inform Fidel Castro of the content of the documents [not further identified--ed.]. He has entrusted me to convey a translation of the draft to President Dorticos, and to reach an agreement with him on all points.
Dorticos, having read through the document, said that in principle the document serves the interests of Cuba, and that it would be approved.
Separate remarks will be introduced after the discussion of our proposals with Fidel Castro and the other leaders, and also after their talks with Comrade A. I. Mikoyan, which are slated for today.
