CLASSIFIED

Cuba Mission to the UN

Very cordially, I explained to U Thant[1] that his proposal concerning informal [i.e. unofficial—trans.] invitation [sic; i.e., inspection—trans./ed.], besides being an abdication of our position on principle, is futile, since the Yankee government is inspecting Soviet ships, and it is known that the dismantling and packing have concluded, and they are now making their departures. On the other hand, so that you may decide your course of action, informed visitors represent countries that are practically on the side of the enemy. Regarding the Brazilian project [i.e., draft—ed.], await instructions from the government. Regards.

[1] Editor’s note: Presumably when he visited Havana on 30-31 October 1962–ed.
