Beirut, Apr. 23, 1949

Number 42/ Russian activity has increased toward Cyprus to get precise information about military and defense preparations undertaken by the British authorities in that island.

I found out the Russians depend on the Communist Party operating under the letters a.k.f.l. to gather information they need about that.

I also found out that the Russian Legation is awaiting the arrival these two days, of two envoys from the two mentioned parties with new information. I wasn’t able to find out the exact information about their names yet.  I confirm that the Russian Legation is expecting their arrival.

I found out that the Armenian Patriarchate in Beirut is trying to bring Father Barak Tomoyan the Vice Patriarch of Cairo to Beirut.

This Tomoyan is one of those working in service of Russian affairs, who had been exiled from Egypt on the first of this month.
