[From Czechoslovak Embassy (La Paz)]

For CC CPCz [Central Committee of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia]


PCB [Communist Party of Bolivia] asking for urgent financial support.  It has been completely drained by ordinary congress, the workers’ unity congress, the election campaign, loan to CP Peru, and sending comrades to the party training in Moscow.  Doesn’t even have funds to pay its functionaries.


Pištora 110.



No way – [nepřichází v úvahu –]


When Bolivia’s political crises reached fever pitch in the lead up to the May 1964 presidential elections, the Communist Party turned to Prague for financial support. Back in Prague, Foreign Ministry officials responded in bold handwriting with a short phrase: nepřichází v úvahu, which translates roughly as "no way."
