Meeting of Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko and Afghan Foreign Minister Shah-Valih, New York
A. A. Gromyko: What is the USA reaction to the latest developments in Afghanistan? We are under the impression that the Americans are still wavering and cannot come to a definite conclusion. Apparently, they have not worked out any specific evaluations. In our discussions with them -- I already met once with Secretary of State [Cyrus R.] Vance -- they have not touched upon this question.
