EAside from accepting the British proposal for a joint appeal by the Geneva co-chairmen for a cease-fire, the Soviet note did not advance the USSR's position in any essential re- spect beyond that stated in its aide memoire of 18 February to ; )! the UK proposing the immediate convening of the ICC and an in- ternational conference-0 The Soviet proposal that the "inter- / ested parties of Laos" should open cease-fire talks provides further evidence that the bloc will seek to avoid any commit- ments on a formal cessation of hostilities prior to a conference. This evasive position on the timing and mechanisms of a cease- fire seems intended to leave the way open for further military pressures by the Kong Le - Pathet Lao forces aimed at rein- forcing the bloc's bargaining position. The warning issued by Chinese Communist Foreign Min- ister Chen Y1 in Djakarta on 2 April that Peiping is prepared to respond to any intervention by SEATO forces in Laos by in- troducing Chinese troops, if requested by Souvanna Phouma, apparently was timed to generate further pressure on non-Com- munist governments to accept the bloc's terms for negotiations as conveyed in the Soviet note. EGovernment forces, apparently under no effective control, are continuing their withdrawal southward from Tha Thom. These troops, with others in the area, have been ordered to set up defensive positions in the vicinity of Borikhane, about 12 miles north of Pak Sane. These are also tentative indications of Kong Le - Pathet Lao plans for increased activity in the Luang Prabang area (Backup, Page 1) (Map) 10?

At this meeting--probably planned by General Mobutu--it was decided that senior officers representing the two factions would meet separately in Leopoldville and Stanleyville on 6 April to arrive at a "general consensus," and that a joint meeting would be held at Lisala in Equateur Province on 10 April. Mobutu apparently hopes to attract support for a strong central government from among Gizenga's military leaders. While Gizenga has also opposed the Tananarive proposals, his military leaders are reportedly meeting with Mobutu's repre- sentatives without Gizenga's approval and have told Mobutu's representatives that they are dissatisfied with the civilian lead- ership in Stanleyville) Katanga's President Tshombe has denounced the airlifting of 800 Indian troops from Leopoldville to Kaanina as a deliber- ate attempt by certain elements in the UN to prevent the for- mation of a confederation of states in the Congo. A UN offi- cial indicated that these troops would seek to interpose them- selves between Tshombe's troops, which took Manono on 30 March, and Baluba tribesmen in northern Katanga who remain loyal to the Stanleyville regime.

Friendship and cultural agreements were signed during the visit, and Chen expressed Peiping's readiness to resume its economic aid program, suspended in the summer of 1959. The difficulties between the two countries over the treatment of Chinese living in Indonesia were eased last December when Peiping agreed to a treaty under which it renounced its previous claim that Chinese living in Indonesia were still Chinese citizens. Tinder the treaty, local Chinese were required to choose withintwo years either Indonesian or Chinese citizenship. (Backup, Page 8) France-Algeria: The announcement on 1 April by the rebel provisional Algerian government (PAG) that it is still ready to negotiate with the French, provided formal talks are held only with its representatives, is an attempt to force fur- ther concessions from Paris. The French are claiming that negotiations will merely be postponed briefly. A top assist- ant to French Minister for Algeria Joxe on 1 April labeled the PAG's declarations a maneuver to get France to take a position on the PAG's claim to be the exclusive representa- tives of Algeria, and predicted that the rebels might try to draw the French into further secret preliminary talks. Portugal: LOn 28-29 March Minister of Defense Botelho Moniz, in a second approach to Premier Salazar this month, stressed again the urgency of reforms both in Portugal andin Portuguese policies in Africa--reforms which the military believe are essential. Oalazar listened attentively and courteously but was noncommittat (Backup, Page 10) 3 Apr 61 DAILY BRIEF iii TOP SECRET I �, II VA Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 SECRET NNW Laos The primary objective of the Soviet note probably was to provide minimum satisfaction to US and British views suf- ficient to get negotiations under way and to forestall any in- crease in Western military assistance to Vientiane without undertaking any commitments which would reduce the bloc's bargaining strength and freedom of maneuver. Moscow's agreement to a joint appeal by the Geneva co-chairmen for a cease-fire does not concede any basic points on the crucial issue of the timing of a cease-fire. This unyielding stand suggests that the bloc leaders are confident they can gain eventual Western agreement to negotiations under conditions favorable for advancing bloc objectives in Laos without sac- rificing any of the advantages which derive from the military initiative and successes of the Kong Le - Pathet Lao forces. In line with the bloc's official pronouncements and propa- ganda over the past two months, the Soviet note placed pri- mary emphasis on Britain's agreement to a 14-nation confer- ence. Moscow claimed credit for having pressed this ap- proach since last December and sought to reap further ad- vantage by proposing that the conference be convened early in April in Phnom Penh, Although Moscow professed to agree with Britain's call for the "earliest termination of hostilities," the Soviet reply was deliberately evasive in dealing with the mechanism pro- posed by the UK for arranging a cease-fire. The note ignored the fundamental US-UK position that reactivation of the ICC and an international conference are conditional on the achieve- ment of a de facto cease-fire. It implicitly rejected the West- ern position that a conference cannot be held until the effec- tiveness of a ce se-fire is verified by both the Geneva co- chairmen and the ICC. Moscow's reply failed to spell out the authority and func- tions of the proposed ICC meeting in New Delhi. It said only that the commission should call a meeting as soon as pos- sible and present its report to the co-chairmen. Moscow 3 Apr 61 CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN Page 1 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 SECRET --- stipulated only that the renewal of ICC activity should in no way impede the convocation of a conference. This formula suggests that the bloc would seek to restrict the ICC to a fruitless debate, at least during the period before an inter- national conference. This attitude would be consistent with the bloc's long-standing position that the changes in the Lao- tian situation since the 1954 Geneva conference make neces- sary the drafting of "fresh instructions" for the ICC and that only an international confe nee would have the authority to work out such directives. Moscow's concept of the role the _Arr�slinuld_nerfconference was set forth the commission meeting in New Delhi would discuss how to resume its activities, con- sider what further powers it would require to take effective action, and report to the co-chairmen Moscow's position that cease-fire talks should be left to the "interested parties of Laos" provides further evidence that the USSR is unwilling to agree to any approach which would indicate Soviet responsibility for or control of the Kong Le - Pathet Lao forces. The Soviet note reaffirmed the USSR's recognition of Souvanna Phouma as the only "legal government", of Laos, but it agreed with the British proposal for negotiations "among the different political tendencies in Laos on measures for strengthening nation 1 unity of the coun- try." Moscow also agreed that if the opposing factions fail to reach agreement before a conference opens, the conference itself should render help to the Laotians in reaching an agree- ment. The stated objective of such consultations is the forma- tion of a "neutral government of national unity"--a further in- dication that the bloc will insist on substantial Pathet Lao rep- resentation in a broadened government. Chen Yi's statement in Djakarta, in addition to warning of possible Chinese intervention in Laos, sought to sharpen the sense of urgency over the crisis by pointing out that "China was compelled to participate in the Korean war after US forces went to our border." While in Burma last week en route to -SECRET 3 Apr 61 CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN Page 2 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 **Nad Indonesia, Chen carefully evaded a question on SEATO inter- vention which would have afforded a similar opportunity for making a specific threat of Chinese counteraction. Peiping is also seeking to exploit the presence of Chinese Nationalist irregulars in the Laos area to arouse concern over the possibility of Chinese intervention. Chen Yi used his Dja- karta press conference to cite the alleged threat posed by these troops, and Peiping has increased its propaganda attention to this issue over the past few days. It has warned that the alleged move by the irregulars to join Laotian Government forces near Vientiane is an "extremely serious development" and has claimed for the first time that the irregulars have conducted raids into China from Laos. An article in Peiping's People's Daily on 1 April, issued be- fore the Soviet reply to the British proposals but undoubtedly with foreknowledge of its contents, took a much harsher line to- ward the US, but its substantive comments were not inconsistent with the Soviet note. The article avoided direct reference to a cease-fire or reactivation of the ICC but repeated Peiping% stand- ard position that an enlarged Geneva conference is the only way to reach a settlement. In his recent talks with British officials in London, Souvanna Phouma stated that as soon as a cease-fire is called for, he would request his followers to support it. He expected conform- ity from the Pathet Lao, as well as Kong Le forces- -which he regards as still separate. Souvanna professed concern that a gap between a cease-fire and the re-establishment of the ICC, and an even longer delay before the convening of an international conference, might enable General Phoumi to improve his posi- tioq /outlining his idea of an interim Laotian government, Sou- vanna stated that it would be drawn from his "supporters with Kong Le," plus former members of his cabinet now serving with Premier Boun Oum and two or three members from both the left) SECRET 3 Apr 61 CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN Page 3 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 SECRET rand the right. British officials felt Souvanna seemed to ap- preciate the desirability of limiting leftists to lesser posts. They found him overconfident on the outcome of early elections in Laos and attempted to convince him that elections should be delayed at least a year to consolidate his own position. The British told the American Embassy that they were impressed by Souvanna's attitude and that, despite the risks in dealing with him, they believe he is the only Laotian offering any promise of bringing about a political settlement and of leading a neutral Laos.:/ ouvanna, now in Paris, plans to leave there on 12 April ES and to visit Belgrade, Warsaw, Moscow, and Peiping before returning to Phnom Penh) In Laos, King Savang and Phoumi returned to Luang Prabang from Vientiane on 2 April without waiting for details of the Soviet reply. Before leaving, Phoumi told Ambassador Brown that a cabinet meeting on 1 April had authorized him to appeal for SEATO intervention if the Soviet reply to the British note proved unfavorable. Although Phoumi assured Ambassador Brown he would not act without prior consultation, similar assurances of consultation by Laotian officials were ignored when Laos ap- pealed for UN assistance in September 1959.

The Moos' effec- tive harassment of Pathet Lao troops in recent weeks has made them a prime target. the time was ripe for concentrated psychological tactics, as the Laotian Army appears considerably demoral- ized. Operational headquarters were instructed to send per- sons into the villages and spread reports of impending attacks by Kong Le - Pathet Lao troops. These reports, headquarters contended, will be passed to Laotian Army intelligence units in the villages, resulting in disruption of government activity and possibly abandonment of the area. This technique has been used with considerable success in the past, and the cur- rent instructions for an intensified effort provide further in- dication of the enemy's intent to expand its territorial hold prior to any negotiated settlement. ELaotian government officials in Luang Prabang are in- creasingly concerned over the prospect of an attack there. Kong Le - Pathet Lao troops as of late March were attempting to flank government forces north of the Phou Khoun junction and move toward the royal capital; additional troops were said to be heading toward Luang Prabang from the Nam Bac area. Although these re- ports are unconfirmed, the disquieting effect on Luang Pra- bang army headauarters "the present situation is critical.

Clashes are reported to have occurred recently between the Katanga gendarmerie and Baluba tribesmen near Kabalo, about 100 miles north of Manono. A UN official stated that UN troops will attempt to prevent further advances by either side, but will use force only as a last resort. Tshomb6 is particularly incensed over UN intervention in Katanga at this time; the presence of additional UN troops, besides posing a threat to future operations by his forces, might also adversely affect the already questionable loyalty of some of the tribal chiefs in the area. Concerned that some of these chiefs might be planning to withdraw from the Katanga "state" and form separate provinces, Tshombe is said to be planning a visit to the troubled areas in an attempt to dissuade them from taking this action. GLIobutu apparently feels that if the Lisala meeting is suc- cessful, he will be able to cope with any opposition to his plan. He is said to believe that if he moves troops into northern Ka- tanga, he could pressure Tshomb6--his principal opponent-- into accepting a federal form of government. Mobutu report- edly is convinced that the UN Command would welcome his aid in "bringing Tshomb6 to heel" and that Tshomb6's "Belgian mercenaries" would not oppose a unified army. In addition to the pressure Mobutu could exert on the Leopoldville politicians with a unified army, he believes he can also count on the sup- port of Foreign Minister Bomboko and Interior Minister Adoula, who are known to share his opposition to a Congo confederacy] {Mobutu is less optimistic regarding a military arrangement with the Stanleyville faction. Although willing to compromise with General Lundula, Mobutu distrusts Gizenga, whom he con- siders "more dangerous than Lumumba." Nevertheless, he be- lieves a unified army can be realized by removing Gizenga from power--.:3 CONTIDENTIAL 3 Apr 61 CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN Page 7 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 CONFIDENTIAL Sino-Indonesian Relations Outwardly Improved by Chen Yi's Visit Peiping, which purports to be the protector of all Over- seas Chinese, made strong representations on their behalf after Djakarta in 1959 ordered the closing of all stores owned by aliens (mostly Chinese) in rural areas. Chinese Commu- nist Embassy personnel defied Indonesian restrictions by traveling through the countryside inciting local Chinese to resist Indonesian attempts to remove them. Although it felt constrained to intervene in favor of the Overseas Chinese, Communist China was probably disturbed over the adverse effect its intransigent attitude toward Indo- nesia had on its carefully developed pose as a good neighbor. Peiping called off its propaganda attacks against Djakarta last August, and relations have been gradually improving since then. Chinese economic assistance to Indonesia totaled $48,000,- 000 before relations became strained by the Overseas Chinese issue. A $30,000,000 Chinese credit offered just before the outbreak of the dispute was never accepted by Indonesia. The planned visit of an Indonesian industrial mission to China later this month will provide an opportunity to discuss economic aid. The Indonesian press was generally cordial to Chen Yi during his week's stay�apparently at the instigation of Presi- dent Sukarno, who has been attempting to play down all other sources of international friction in order to focus attention on Indonesia's claim to Netherlands New Guinea. Nevertheless, Chinese-Indonesian relations are unlikely to be significantly affected. Foreign Minister Subandrio, still smarting from the treatment he received in Peiping in 1959, deliberately refrained from any welcoming remarks on Chen Yi's arrival at the Dja- karta airport.

Although the treaty of friendship declared that the two countries would "settle the issues in dispute through delibera- tions in the spirit of real friendship and good will through dip- lomatic channels and by other peaceful means," relations might again become embittered if Djakarta renews its attem7ts to re- move Chinese from rural areas. 3 Apr 61 CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN Page 9 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Approved for Release: 2020/08/11 CO2001975 Ns" --SECRET� loaf Portuguese Defense n tl1/441�i4Wi�urg� es Premier Salazar to Re- shuffle Cabinet an addition to Moniz' two oral approaches to Salazar, a letter drafted by Moniz and endorsed on 25 March by 17 key generals--including the heads of the security police and the rdhasbensenttothemier. omz letter pointed out Portugal's rapidly worsening position at home and abroad and emphasized that nothing was being done tsi halt this condition except an unproductive propaganda cam- paign against the UN and against those nations which disagree with Portuguese policy:3 EMoniz stressed that Portugalfaced the possibility of re- volt in all its African provinces and Timor, as well as Indian "aggression" against Goa, and said the military felt they could not cope with a situation of such magnitude.
