CC CPSU

On the reception of three Syrian Communists for the special-studies in Moscow

The CC CPSU made a decision to satisfy the request of Central Committee of the Syrian communist party relative to the instructions in Damascus for the group of Syrian comrades in the methods of secret work and to the reception of one Syrian Communist in Moscow for the instructions in special methods of operation with the passports (decision by the CC CPSU 125/5gs dated May 8, 1974).

Taking into account the contemporary situation in Syria, our friends expressed a wish that the instruction of their three representatives in methods of secret work would be carried out not in Damascus, but in Moscow. Simultaneously they requested to additionally accept one communist for the instructions in special methods of operation with the passports (cryptogramma KGB from Damascus, special No.814).

We would agree to satisfy the request about conducting the special instructions of Syrian Communists in Moscow. It would be possible to accept three comrades, beginning in September 1974 for the period of one month. It would be reasonable to charge such instructions to the KGB, subsidiary of the Council of Ministers of USSR, while to lay responsibilities for material and economic issues to the Department of Management of Affairs of the CC CPSU. Expense for the passage of three people from Damascus to Moscow and back and for their stay in the Soviet Union to carry out as the reception of foreign party workers.

Concerning the reception of one additional communist for the instructions in special methods of operation with the passports, taking into account considerations of the conspiracy, this question can be examined later, after the completion instructions of the first comrade.

A question is coordinated with the KGB with the Council of Ministers of USSR (com. Mortinyn F.K.).

The proposal of the decision by the CC CPSU is attached.

Deputy Head of International Division of CC CPSS (R. Ulyanovskiy)
