FROM THE EMBASSY IN HAVANA

ON/6/6/XI/62

CONFIDENTIAL

DAC/DAS/DEA/DOr/DNU/600.(24h)

Question of Cuba.

Proclamations of China.

370 – TUESDAY – 1030hrs – I am calling to attention the rude and violent tone of the proclamations of support to Cuba on the part of China contrasting with the relative moderation of the USSR and of its satellites. As there is no signal of a major presence or effective approach of China with Cuba, it appears that one should treat this as more of a shot [picuínha] of [Chinese Communist Party Chairman] Mao [Mao Zedong] at Khrushchev.
