Very urgent

TO THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS

Tonight had talks with General [Albino] Da Silva, Goulart’s special envoy. He is enthusiastic advocate of Fidel [Castro]. F. neither offered, nor accepted any of suggestions. Until now, only empty phrases. Further details continued.

If [one is] to believe to Brazilian and [UN aide Maj.-Gen. Indar Jit] Rikhye, the first talks of U Thant were disappointing. Fidel is very stubborn. Doesn’t accept anything.

Tomorrow they will continue talks. Further details continued.

Vidaković
