RECORD OF A CONVERSATION

with CARLOS OLIVARES SANCHEZ,

the Ambassador of Cuba in the USSR

4 April 1964

As arranged, on 3 April I received Cde. Carlos Olivares Sanchez, Ambassador of the Republic of Cuba in the USSR, at a reception in the Embassy of the Hungarian People’s Republic.

At the beginning of the conversation [we] exchanged opinions on the situation in Brazil [note in the original: “no details here”].

Then I informed the Ambassador that at the present time the Soviet specialists who had performed the testing of the tractor-drawn and self-propelled combines in Cuba for harvesting the sugar cane and the machines for planting it, are pursuing work at the present time to refine the blueprints of these machines.

<…>

I asked whether architects of the Polish People’s Republic and Brazil, who received the first and second prizes [premii], respectively, will come to Cuba.

The Ambassador replied that the Polish comrades have agreed to come to Cuba. As regards the Brazilian architects, he does not have any specific information. But, in connection with the situation which has been created in Brazil, he doubts they will come to Havana.

CHIEF OF THE DEPARTMENT

of the Latin American Countries (V. BAZYKIN)
