MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS

On [the] conversation with Mikoyan.

USSR guarantees independence of Cuba and because of this the American imperialism cannot deprive the Cuban people of independence.

Talks are not yet finished. With substantial patience and gradually the Cuban leadership will nonetheless understand the basic reasons of Soviet tactics. He [Mikoyan] thinks that he will have to stay a few more days. USSR unconditionally gives Cuba all necessary material help, without which the Cuban revolution could not exist. They started talks about economy while political talks are still ongoing. He says he is an optimist, still.

Vidakovic
