RESOLUTION “A” No. 127 OF POLITBURO OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE BULGARIAN COMMUNIST PARTY FROM 2 JUNE  1961[1]

TO Comrade Anton Yugov, Prime Minister of PR of Bulgaria

Comrade Yugov,

Our Ambassador in Havana has talked to Cuba’s Minister of Foreign Affairs [Raul] Roa, who told him that, if the circumstances allow it, Fidel Castro will visit Moscow this year in order to receive the international Lenin award “For strengthening the peace among the peoples” for 1960 which has been conferred on him. If the visit takes place, he intends to visit the other socialist countries as well. Comrade [Konstantin] Michev suggests that Fidel Castro be officially invited to visit our country.

I consider our ambassador’s suggestion adequate and suggest that Fidel Castro be officially invited on behalf of Bulgaria’s Prime Minister to visit our country at a convenient time for him, in case his visit to the USSR takes place.

MINISTER

/K. Lukanov[2]/
