Molotov reported planning important talks in San Francisco: Comment: Soviet propaganda has not com- mented on what might be accomplished by the four foreign ministers at San Francisco, where they meet on 20 June in connection with the anniversary of the UN. It did quote French press opinion, however, that the meetings could help to dispel misunderstandings that have arisen over the summit talks. The Soviet Union has asked for visas for 46 persons to go to San Francisco. FAR EAST 2. Rhee fears US may support opposition in presidential election: President Rhee has become increasingly concerned over the possibility that Ameri- can authorities may support a candidate other than himself in the 1956 presidential elections, according to Eighth Army reports from Korea. The re- ports state that Rhee has ordered an investigation in Seoul and Manila of Ambassador Lacy, seeking information as to whether American support contributed to President Magsaysay's election in the Philippines. 4 June 55 CURRENT INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN Page 3 TOP SECRET Approved for Release: 2019/09/17 003194465 Approved for Release: 2019/09/17 C03194465 1 Ut LCI
