CC CPSU

Re: Request of the leadership of the Portuguese Communist Party

The leadership of the Portuguese Communist Party (Comrade O[ctavio] Pato) requests that [CC CPSU] purchase special equipment of foreign manufacture to upgrade that party’s security.

We believe it expedient to grant the request of the PCP leadership, and that three thousand USD should be allocated for the purpose.

Expenses involved in the acquisition and supply of this special equipment to the Portuguese friends could be referred to the expense items of the party budget.

The Committee for State Security of the USSR could be tasked with the acquisition and supply (this matter has been coordinated with Comrade Andropov).

Draft Resolution of the CC CPSU is enclosed herewith.

(Signed) V. Zagladin,

Deputy Head of the International Department, CC CPSU
