In brief, Slatinshek thought the proposals were quite good but noted they made na provision for one point that has bothered Chairman Nedzi, Intelligence Subcommittee, considerably and thaL? is Agency conduct of official business with former employees.

(Confidential - J'GO) Met with Marian Czarnecki, Chief of Staff, douse Foreign Affairs Gomrnittee, and discussed with him the informal request for Agency briefing on Chile. I told hirn that we would be pleased to brief the Committee on the current intelligence situation in Chile and would have no hesitancy in responding to a question concerning Agency involvement in the coup that there was no involvement. However, we are unable to brief or discuss Agency operations in Chile. Czarnecki told me he will be meeting later in the day with Chairman Morgan, of the full C;omrnittee, and Chairman Fascell, of the Inter-American Affairs Subcarnmittee, Although he was not able to commit the two Chairmen, it is his opinion that this will provide a satisfactory formula. 3.
