Summary of the Conversation with Mauzy, Committee Staff of the Subcommittee on Foreign Affairs of the U.S. House of Representatives, and William J. Garvelink, aide for Rep. Donald M. Fraser (1976. 11. 25)

1. Current newspaper articles regarding the ROK have demoralized supporters of Korea in the U.S. Congress.

2. The Carter administration has argued that Korea must implement measures addressing the human rights issue and responding to the criticism of Korea in the U.S. Congress.

3. The Carter administration may ask Korea for a considerable increase in the Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to Korea in the 1978 Fiscal Year just as the Ford administrations did. In this case, Korea would be publicly criticized and forced to accept a decrease in the FSM. Therefore, it would be wise for the U.S. government to request from Korea a small amount of the FMS.

4. It is impermissible to expect the Korean issue to be cast in a positive light because supporters of Korea in the U.S. Congress have largely diminished.

5. The U.S. media is expected to keep on writing articles on Korea from critical viewpoints for a long while.
