Re: Assistance to the Communist Party of Chile in messengers’ transit and special personnel training

The leadership of the Communist Party of Chile (CPC) has requested that the CC CPSU receive in 1988 14_ CPC activists for a course of training in clandestine technique (Party equipment, special photography, physical surveillance, etc.) and [CPC members] as messengers on their way from or to Chile, also that the traveling expenses of the said comrades be recompensed.

We believe it expedient to grant this request of the leadership of the Communist Party of Chile. The International Department and the Department of Administrative Affairs of the CC CPSU could be tasked with the accommodation of these Chilean comrades, and the Committee for State Security of the USSR — with their equipment, ID papers, and special training. The traveling expenses borne by the CPC representatives on the way from the country of residence to Moscow and from Moscow to Chile, as well as their living expenses during their stay in the USSR of up to three months, the cost of equipment and other expenses involved in the fulfillment of the request of the CPC leadership could be charged to the party budget reserve.

This issue has been coordinated with the CC CPSU Department of Administrative Affairs and the Committee for State Security of the USSR (Comrade V.A. Kryuchkov).

 

Draft resolution of the CC CPSU is enclosed herewith. (Signed) V. Zagladin,

Deputy Head of the International Department, CC CPSU January 11, 1988
