CC CPSU

Concerning the appeal to the Czechoslovak Communist Party about K. Babrak

The USSR Committee of State Security Rezident in Kabul informs [us] that the former Ambassador of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan in Prague, Karmal Babrak, whom the Czech comrades have given political asylum after he was removed from the post of DRA ambassador and he refused to return to his homeland, is conducting work among Parchamists (members of the “Parcham” group headed by K. Babrak) located abroad (in capitalist and socialist countries) and in Afghanistan, to consolidate them to combat the current regime in Afghanistan, against the People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) and the DRA government  (cipher telegram from Kabul, spets. Nº 1537 of 25.10.1978).

We consider it advisable to appeal to the CC CPC with a proposal to hold a conversation with K. Babrak about the need to cease activity by him which is hostile to the ruling regime in Afghanistan.

A draft CC CPSU resolution is attached.

Deputy Chief of the CC CPSU
