CPSU Central Committee

On Military Technical Cooperation with Foreign Countries

In accordance with the USSR Defense Council Resolution from August 15th, 1986 and in development of the CPSU Central Committee Resolution from August 19 of this year “On Measures to Radically Improve Foreign Economic Activity,” a review has been conducted at the present time of issues related to improving the leadership over the areas of defense and industry in military technical cooperation with foreign countries. In doing so attention is being paid to the following considerations:

1. A number of regulations in the CPSU Central Committee Resolution from August 19th relating to measures to improve the administration of foreign economic relations can also be applied to work [inserted in handwriting: “of defense-related areas of industry”] on cooperation with foreign countries.

2. Issues of military technical cooperation and work to export production from defense-related areas of industry are not assigned to the State Foreign Economic Commission of the USSR Council of Ministers (Comrade V.M. Kamentsev), and the commission only considers itself to have ownership of such issues in the form of general indicators of output quantities.

3. It would be expedient to assign the State Commission of the USSR Council of Ministers on Military-Industrial Questions (Comrade Iu.D. Masliukov) general inter-agency leadership over the work of defense-related and other areas of industry on military technical cooperation with foreign countries. To also assign [“to it” is crossed out and “VPK” is inserted in handwriting instead] leadership over the work of defense-related areas of manufacturing of export products of civil significance.
