Introduction A. Since the Communist take-over of the Czechoslovak Government in February 1948, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has under- gone a number of profound changes in structure and organization. These changes may be attributed to a variety of causes, among which are: 1. Mass purges: In the first years after the February coup, the Communist Party set out to replace experienced but politically unreliable individuals in all levels of the MFA with the politically reliable, regardless of their ability or experience. 2. Intra-Party purges: Stemming from the central SLANSKY- GOTTWALD power struggle, the purges of 1949-1952 took a heavy toll of MFA personnel. Soviet domination: After the 1948 coup, the MFA ceased to be the foreign policy making and implementing organ of an independent nation and became merely a captive extension of Soviet institutions: a. Some changes in the MFA may be attributable simply to the general tendency throughout the Czech Government to modify Czech institutions according to the Soviet model. b. Recent changes in the MFA which appear to accentuate the affairs of underdeveloped nations probably reflect the assignment of the CSR to the role of spearhead in Bloc economic penetration. B.. What follows is an attempt to trace the development of the MFA into its present form and, in passing, to speculate about the reasons underlying basic changes in its structure and organization.

As it existed at the time of the Communist coup, aid as it con- tinued to exist for a year under the first Communist Foreign Minister, Vladimir CLEMENJIS, the NFA was divided into six major departments under the supervision of four Deputy Ministers. Unlike its present primarily geographical organization, the ME'A of 1947/1949 was organized along functional lines and mixed housekeeping support, and area divisions indiscriminately (see Chart 1). For instance, Department II, Political Affairs, was divided into eight different area sections; Department III, Intelligence, was broken into four ethnic/geographical sections; Department IV, Economic Affairs, was broken into five linguistic/ geographical sections; and Department G', Administrative Support, split the world into three parts. A potpourri of offices, depart- ments, sections, divisions, and commissions, many of waose func- tions appear to have overlapped, the pre-1949 MFA 7A,as :made to function smoothly by a General Secretariat directly under the control of the Foreign Minister. Termed the "backbone" of the MFA, the General Secretariat functionec_ to coordinate and direct the activities of every segment of the Ministry. Its :elimination was the first measure taken in the re-organization of the MFA after the February 1949 coup. P. Perhaps in an attempt to ape the Soviet model (which it came to resemble closely), more likely in an attempt to rob the Foreign Minister of any real control of his Ministry, the MFA was totally reorganized in the spring of 1949. The six functional departments were replaced by four divisions with a Deputy Minister in charge of each. All area departments (Territoria) were concentrated under Division A; Division B included the Diplomatic Protocol Department (formerly attached to the General Secretariat), Finan- cial and Economic Departments, the Ministry Archives, and the Ministry Housing Office; Division C was devoted entirely to UN affairs, International Organizations, and International Legal Affairs; and Division. D was made responsible for a multitude of support functions, including security, communications, per- sonnel reliability and recruitment, the courier service, and passport and visa offices. C. The period extending from the purge era of 1949/1951 to the last major reorganization of the Ministry in 1958 was a time of steady but unspectacular evolution. The sweeping structural changes of Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 -3- 19+9 had fixed the basic pattern of the NFA, but as leading personalities changed, as the role of Czechoslovakia in the Bloc shifted, and as new, Soviet-trained foreign affairs specialists entered the CSR Foreign Service, units within the MFA were enlarged or de-emphasized and passed from the control of one :Deputy Minister to another. By 1955 the evolution of the MFA had produced marked changes. The basic quadrapartite structure remained, but the divisions were identified by supervising Deputy Ministers rather than by letter designation, a change which suggests that responsibilities were tailored to individual Deputies. Deputy Ministers I and II, corresponding roughly to the earlier Divisions A and B, shared area department responsi- bilities. Under Deputy Minister I were departments for Soviet-Sat- ellite affairs, for the Near East, for Africa, and for Asia. Deputy Minister II assumed responsibility for Western Europe, the UK and her Commonwealth, the USA, and Central and South America. Deputy Minister III's responsibilities remained essentially unchanged from those of the earlier Division C --- .e., international organizations and the UN. Deputy Minister IV (corresponding to the earlier Division D) gained control of the Financial and Budgetary Department (formerly under Division B) and lost control of the much more important Cadre Department, which moved back under the aegis of the Foreign Minister's office. It is interesting to speculate that this latter move was the result of an attempt by the Minister (the strong SIROKY, not the weak CLEMENTIS or the weaker DAVID) to keep tight rein on personnel matters after the revelations by Rudolf SLANSKY and Arthur LONDON (Deputy Minister in charge of Division D) that they had packed the Y2FA with Slanskyites. D. What is believed to be the present organization of the MFA is the result of ten years of evolutionary change culminating in the last known Ministry-wide reorganization in 1958. While the basic structure of the MFA has remained still essentially unchanged, the 1958 reorganization saw a sizeable swapping of responsibilities between Deputy Ministers. Deputy Minister I continued in control. of Soviet-Satellite affairs and assumed the Finance and Budgetary Department formerly under Deputy Minister IV; Deputy Minister II continued in control of Western Europe, USA and Latin American Departments, and assumed control of the Diplomatic Protocol Depart- ment from the office of the Minister; Deputy Minister III shed all responsibilities except for the area desks concerned with affairs in the underdeveloped countries of Africa, the Near East Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915RO01200200002-4 and Southeast Asia; and Deputy Minister 1V became he local point for nearly all support functions (except the Cadre Department) for the Ministry. Again, it is intereEting to speculate that the concentration of underdeveloped area affairs ((z--xcept Latin America, to which the Czechs are late-comers) under a single Deputy Minister is evidence of the increased import.anc:e assigned to these areas by the Czechs who, since 1954, have poured some 565 million dollars in credits and loans into the bloc economic aid program. ?II. The Depute Ministers and Their Responsibilities A.. A careful examination of the careers of the eleven individuals who have held the post of Deputy Minister since the 1944 coup reveals the fact that, while the basic four-division structure of the Ministry has existed steadily since its inception in 1949, there has been considerable shifting of key units from Division to Division as Deputy Ministers changed, were purged, or left their slots vacant for long periods of time. I. In 1948, shortly after the coup, the four Deputy Ministers were: 1. Jiri TAUFER - First Deputy Minister in. charge of the Territoria. 2. Arthur LONDON - Deputy Minister in charge of most of the support functions later gathered under Division D. 3. Gertruda SEKANINONA-CAK-ETOVA - Deputy Minister in charge of UN affairs and international legal and organization affairs (later Division C). 4. Jaromir BOREK - Deputy Minister in charge of Administration and Protocol (the responsibilities later gathered under Division B). C. In July 1948, TAUFER was replaced by Dr. Vavro EAJDU uLs Deputy Minister in charge of Territoria. In the spring of .L951, the second of the major post-war purges hit the MFA, and LONDON and IIAJDU (who had depended on LONDON for his place in the Ministry) fell before the political storm. The remaining two Deputy Minis- ters, SEKANINOVA-CAKRTOVA and. BOREK, split their former colleagues' responsibilities between them: Mrs. SEKANINOVA-CAEPOVA assumed EIAJDU's Territorial duties (except for Section A-VI, Germany/ Austria) along with her own Division C duties, and 13011,kK took on Section A-VI and an unknown number of offices in Division D previously administered by LONDON. It is probable that SIROKY, then Foreign Minister, assumed much of LONDON's former Division, including the crucial Cadres Department.

In December 1952, BOREK was killed in a hunting accident, and until the appointment of Dr. Ladislav SIMOVIC as a Deputy Minister in November 1953, Mrs. SEKANINOVA-CAKRTOVA apparently minded the shop alone. By October 1955, the Deputy Ministers and their re- sponsibilities had evolved to the following: 1. SEKANINOVA-CAKRTOVA - Western Powers and the UN and International Organizations. 2. SIMOVIC - Soviet-Satellite Bloc, Near and Far East. 3. Karel KURKA (who had been appointed Deputy Minister sometime in 1953) - most of the support functions grouped under Division D. Diplomatic Protocol, Press, Legal, and Economic Affairs were all grouped directly under the Foreign Minister, Vaclav DAVID. E. In the spring of 1956, Jiri NOSEK served briefly (for about three months) as Deputy Minister and assumed control of the UN and International Organizations Division. In June 1957 Mrs. SEKANINOVA- CAKRTOVA fell from grace after the suicide of her husband (impli- cated in his brother's embezzlement from a State Bank). Her rank as First Deputy Minister passed to Antonin GREGOR, who was appointed Deputy Minister in July 1957, and her UN/International Organizations duties fell to Karel KURKA. SIMOVIC left his Deputy Ministership to become Ambassador to Japan in December 1957, and in January 1.958 Jiri HAJEK assumed his present job as Deputy Minister II (Western ;powers). Karel KURKA left his post in late 1958 to become permanent UN Delegate in New York; NOSEK returned to take over Deputy Minister IV's duties in December 1959, and Ing. Jan BUSNIAK assumed the territorial functions under Deputy Minister III in April 1960. FART TWO What follows is a detailed analysis of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as it existed just prior to January 1949, during the years 19+9-1951, and in the post-purge period of 1952-1960.

The Office of the Foreign Minister: Upon the suicide of Jan MASARYK in March 1948, old-line Communist Vladimir CLEMENTIS was elevated to the position of Foreign Minister, a job he held until his arrest in March 1950. Beside his responsibility for the Minis- try as a whole, CLEMENTIS had direct control of four important units within the MFA. These were: L. A General Secretariat, bossed by Dr? Jaroslav ZOUREK under Secretary-General Arnost HEIDRICH (Who defected to the West in November 19)4-8), which acted as a policy making and inter- departmental coordinating body for the entire M:Lnistry. A Cabinet, under Dr. Vilem CERNY, which handled the correspon- dence and personal affairs of the Minister. The Diplomatic Protocol Section, under Dr. Jan SKALICKY, which was concerned with. protocol services for the Prague Diplomatic Corps. 4. "Section B," under Frantisek KLUBICKO and his deputy, Frantisek VITKU, which was responsible for telegraphic, teletape, and cipher communications. Ti. Department I, the Presidum: Under its Chief, Dr. Jaroslav KRAUS, and his deputies, Dr. Milos POKORNY and Dr. Vladimir PALIC, the Presidium was charged with the internal administration of the MFA. Et was made up of six sections and an attached office administra- tive group. The sections of the Presidum and their chiefs were: L. Section 1, Organization and Inspect-on., was under the direction of Dr. Ota DVOUIY. It was charged with the organization of Ministry and Diplomatic Office and with liaison between domestic and foreign installations. 2. Section 2, Personnel. Dealing with all personnel matters for the Foreign Service and administering the Ministry's courier service, the Personnel Section was divided into two sub-sections, a Central Office under Alois HOFFMAN and an office under Evzen KORUNKA dealing with Ministry personnel stationed abroad. 3. Section 3, Budget and Fiscal, was also divided into two sub-sections.

Several reports indicate that CLEMENTIS rapidly lost control of his Ministry after the reorganization, with the real power going to LONDON and HAJDU. In many cases, the Deputies could over-rule the Minister, and he was allowed to see only such correspondence as they selected. In any event, with the reorganiza- tion, CLEMENTIS lost control of the Protocol and Communications Offices (to BOREK and LONDON, respectively), and his Secretariat was destroyed, to be revived in a vitiated form only after CLEMENTIS' arrest and imprisonment. B. Division A, Territoria: For a brief period in the spring of 19W3 the territorial departments under Division A were handled jointly by Deputy Ministers Jiri TAUFER and Dr. Vavro HAJDU, TAUFER taking care of Eastern affairs and HAJDU assuming responsibility for Western affairs. After TAUFER stepped down in July 1948, Deputy Minister HAJDU controlled all of Division A until his arrest in April 195:L. In 1950-1951, Division A was organized as follows: 1. Department A/I: USSR. Chief, Dr. Ivan KOPECKY. 2. Department A/II: "Peoples' Democracies" (except GDR and Yugoslavia). Chief, Dr. Marta GOTTWALDOVA-CEPICKOVA. 3. Department A/III: Press and News Department.

The account of the MFA in 1948 - 1951 set forth above has been based on a number of detailed and relatively comprehensive reports produced by a variety of Czech defectors and ex-MFA functionaries. Unfortunately, no such material is available for the years 1952 - 1957. While it has been determined that the basic quadrapartite structure of the Ministry remained the same throughout the period in question, and enough information is available to indicate some of the changes undergone by isolated units within the Ministry, it is impossible to place a given unit within the major structural groups of the Ministry with real certainty. Our picture of the MFA during this period is further confused by the practice, instituted sometime after 1951, of identifying the major divisions of the Ministry by the Deputy Ministers who headed them rather than by arbitrary alphabetical or functional designations. Too often, as Deputy Ministers exchanged Divisions or were replaced, the elements of their Divisions changed also. As a consequence, it has seemed wisest to approach the history of the ] 'A during this period from the relatively firm standpoint of 1958, the date of our latest, well- documented survey of the Ministry. The following analysis, then, will follow the structural outline of the 1958 MFA, reaching back to the pre-1949 Ministry for identification purposes when necessary, and tracing each unit as it changed its position within the Ministry, came under the aegis of a new Deputy Minister, or underwent internal changes in leadership or function. (See Chart 3 for the organizational structure as of January 1958.)

Shortly after the purge of CLEMENTIS and the elevation of Viliam SIROKY to the Ministry (in March 1950), a second wave of purges was instituted, resulting in the arrest of HAJDU and LONDON in the spring of 1951. The subsequent gap in the leadership of the MFA was filled partly by the two remaining Deputies (SEKANINOVA-CAKRTOVA and BOREK) and partly by SIROKY himself. Unlike his predecessor, SIROKY had the full confidence of the Party. Probably out-ranked only by ZAPATOCKY and GOTTWALD, SIROKY was a member of the Central Committee and the Chairman of the Slovak Communist Party: he was undoubtedly able to rule his Ministry with great freedom. In the SLANSKY-GOTTWALD fight, SIROKY chose the correct side, and with the death of GOTTWALD in 1953, he succeeded to the Deputy Premiership vacated by GOTTWALD's successor, ZAPATOCKY. 2. To fill SIROKY's place in the MFA, the Party chose Vaclav a. Diplomatic School. Nothing is known of this school except that it was under the direction of Dr. Ladislav JAHODA as of January 1958. DAVID, who has displayed amazing staying power in his assign- ment. He is generally considered nothing more than a figure- head (which may account for his longevity), and the real power in the Ministry has passed through the hands of a series of Deputy Ministers as they rose or fell in Moscow's estima- tion. At present, the leadership in the Ministry appears to be passing from HAJEK (who supplanted GREGOR as the real power some time ago) to NOSEK. Probably coeval with SIROKY's assumption of some of the duties administered in Division D by the disgrac.Arthur LONDON, the institution of the Minister's Secretariat was revived. In 1958 the Chief of the Secretariat was Milos PARIS; as of October 1960, it was Josef HORAK. By at least 1955, if not long before, the Office of the Minister had evolved to approx- imately its present organization. As of January 1958, the following sub-units were directly controlled by the Minister: b. Boarding School. Administered by Bohuslav FIENER, the Boarding School oversees the care and education of minor children whose parents are stationed abroad. In 1958 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 -16- the MFA began the practice of sending a teacher to posts which had ten or more children of school age. In 1955 the Boarding School was administered, but not controlled, by the School Section of the Cadres Department, at that time also a part of the Minister's Secretariat. c. Cadres Department. The Cadres Department consists of three sections: a Cadres Section under Rudolf :SMIC (as of mid-1958), a School Section under Zikmund TOBIAS (as of January 1958), and a Personnel Section under Emilia KARASOVA (as of February 1959). The earliest identified chief of the Personnel Section was Alois HOFFMAN (October 1951); the chief in January 1958 was Josef KOVARIK. The Cadres Department has been attached directly to the Office of the Foreign Minister since at least the beginning of DAVID's term as Minister and probably since SIROKY took over some of LONDON's duties in 1951. Under LONDON, the Cadres Department was the key instrument for controlling the recruitment, regulation, and discipline of NFA employees. In addition, the Cadres Department screened employees for signs of political unreliability, and in 19+9-1952 it over- saw the mass purging of Ministry personnel. According to his own testimony at the SLANSKY trial, LONDON had been given control of the Cadres Department so that he could pack the Ministry with individuals loyal to SLANSKY. Identified as Chiefs of the Cadre Department have been: Dr. (fnu) KOSINEK in 1949, Vaclav BURES "up to" 1950 Josef ULLRICH from February to June 1951 (fnu) PLECHATA as of February 1952 Josef CASTA from June 1953 to 1955 Emil RABYSKA from 1955 to April 1960 C. Departments Under the Present First Deputy Minister, Antonin GREGOR: 1. Territorial Department I - USSR. Identified as Chiefs of Soviet Affairs have been: a. (fnu) STEFAN from early 1951 until April 1951. Sanitized - Approved F& CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 -17- b. Ivan KOPECKY from April 1951 until sometime after October 1951. c. Jaroslav SYKORA from at least January 1958 until at least May 1959. d. Josef KAFKA as of October 1960. 2. Territorial Department II - East European People's Democracies. Section 11/2 in the pre-1949 MFA was headed by Ing. Vaclav BURES. In 1951, under Dr. Marta GOTTWAIDOVA-CEPICKOVA, De- partment A-II (under Division A) was responsible for Red China, Korea, Viet Nam, and the East European People's Democ- racies less the GDR and Yugoslavia. The latest known Chief of Territorial Department II was Vladimir KNAP, who left that post to become Ambassador to Guinea in June 1959. The Chief of the Greek/Yugoslav Section was identified in 1956 as Ing. (fnu) VASEK. 3. Territorial Department III - GDR, West Germany, Austria. Prior to the 1949 reorganization, Section 11/8 grouped together Austria, Germany, and Hungary. The Chief of the Section then was Tibor VARHOLA. After the 1949 reorganization, Department A -VI under Frantisek HERMAN handled German and Austrian affairs. There were separate desks for the GDR, West Germany, and Austria. With the purge of HAJDU in 1951 and the division of his respon- sibilities between the surviving Deputy Ministers, the Austrian- German Section moved temporarily under the control of BOREK, Deputy Minister in charge of Division B. By February 1956 the Germany-Austria Department was headed by Emil HRSEL, the German desk by Dr. (fnu) LISKA (who had headed it under BOREK in October 1951), and the Austrian desk by Dr. (fnu) LUHAK. Josef SEDIVY headed the IIIrd Territorial Department from at least January 1958 until May 1959; the present head is Dr. Villem PITHART. 4. Financial-Economic Department a. As it is presently organized, the Financial-Economic Department consists of three divisions: the Financial Division, the Economic Division, and the Main Accounting Office. In the pre-1949 Ministry the functions of the Financial-Economic Department were performed by Section 1/3 (Budget) of the Presidium. Chief of Section 1/3 was Dr. Rudolf LIPSKY, the present head of the Financial Division. Chief of Section I/3B (Fiscal) was Karel VANEK; Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915RO01200200002-4 -18- under him was the Accounting Office headed by its present incumbent, Jiri HRADECKY. HRADECKY's predecessor was a (fnu) PITTERMAN who was discharged in September 1948. Section I/4 (Economic) was headed by Josef KROUPA. b. After the 1949 reorganization, the Financial-Economic functions were moved bodily under the direction of BOREK (Division B). By 1958 they had been moved to the purview of Deputy Minister III and then back once again under the First Deputy Minister. The latest known Chief of the Financial-Economic Department (as of January 1958) was Frantisek KOMSALA. Chief of the Financial Division as of the same date was LIPSKY, of the Accounting Office was HRADECKY, and of the present Economic Division was Jaroslav MULLER. D. Departments Under the Present Second Deputy Minister, Jiri HAJEK: 1. Territorial Department IV - Western Europe less Scandinavia and the UK. a. In the pre-1949 MFA, Western European affairs were con- ducted by Section 3 of Department II (Political Affairs). Chief of the Section was Antonin TOMES. After the 1949 reorganization much of the free world was grouped under the title "Marshall Plan Countries" (Department: IV of A Division) and headed by Josef FARBER. Purely Western Euro- pean matters were handled in Section A-IV/2 (France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, and Dominions), headed by Dr. Gizela (?) SARISSKA, and Section A-IV/3 (Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Trieste, and Spain), headed by Dr. Vladimir ZAK. By 1956, the Western European Countries were once again in a single department, headed by Oldrich KAISR. b. The desks and their chiefs in February 1956 were: (1) France, Belgium, Netherlands: Fedor BALLO France/Belgium: (fnu) KORNER Netherlands: Vratislav KRAUS (2) Finland/Sweden: Frantisek VITKU (3) Norway/Denmark/Iceland: Jan BURES (4) Greece/Yugoslavia: Ing. (fnu) VASEK Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915RO01200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915RO01200200002-4 -19- c. As reorganized in 1958, Territorial Department IV, no longer accountable for Scandinavian, Greek or Yugoslav affairs, was headed by Fedor BALLO. BALLO was succeeded in Feb- ruary 1959 by Bohumil VERNER, who was succeeded in turn by the present Chief, Miroslav SUSTAL. 2. Territorial Department V - UK, British Commonwealth., and Scan- dinavia. In the pre-1949 MFA, Scandinavian affairs were ad- ministered under Section 11/3 lead by TOMES, and UK/Commonwealth affairs were under Section II/4 headed by Dr. Karel KOSTAL. After the 19+9 reorganization, UK affairs were controlled under the Marshall Plan Countries Section (A-IV). A-IV/l, the UK/ Dominions desk, was joined with the American (i.e, Western Hemisphere) desk to form a separate British/American Section. under the supervision of Jan PUDLAK. Miroslav TYL remained chief of the UK/Canada desk, Dusan POKORNY headed the USA desk, and Miroslav HRUZA was chief of the South and Central American desk. In late 1957, the American/British Section split: Jan PUDLAK assumed direction of the British desk and added Scan- dinavian affairs to his portfolio to form Territorial Depart- ment V, and Dr. Vladimir PAVLICEK became chief of Territorial Department VI, Latin American affairs. PUDLAK remained Chief of Department V until his appointment as Ambassador to Italy in December 1958. The present Chief of Department V is Dr. Jiri PINKAVA. 3. Territorial Department VI - Canada, USA, Latin America. Dr. Vladimir PAVLICEK remained head of Department VI until he was replaced by former Ambassador to the U.S. Dr. Karel PETRZELKA in February 1959. Under PETRZELKA, the American desk has been headed by Karel DUDA (from 16 July 1959) assisted by Jiri FRIED; the Canadian desk is headed by Vlastimil TUNA. and the Latin American Section has been headed by Michal GRACLIK since 29 August 1959. Earlier chiefs of sections dealing with US/Latin American affairs were Dr. Gustav SOLAR (early 191+9), Dr. (fnu) DOLKOSOVA (about 1950), and Ing. Lubomir LINHART (September 1951 to March 1953). 1.. Czechoslovak Foreign Institute. The Czechoslovak Foreign Institute probably is identical with the Institute for the Study of International Politics, which was headed by Dr. Vladimir KAIGL as of October 1958.

Prior to the 1949 reorgani- zation, the Diplomatic Protocol Department was attached directly to the office of the Foreign Minister. Its chief in 1949 was Dr. Jan SKALICKY. After 1949, Protocol moved under the control of Deputy Minister BOREK (Division B), and was headed first by Dr. Vladim:Ll KLVANA and then by Ing. J. CHALUPA. CHALUPA was replaced by Josef SEDIVY in November 1951, and SEDIVY held the job until 17 July 1954? From July 1954, Chief of Protocol was Dr. Dobromil JECNY. JECNY was named Ambassador to Japan in April 1960, and Dr. Josef URBAN succeeded him in Protocol. URBAN's Deputy is Oldrich SICHA. 6. Diplomatic Corps Service Administration (Sprava sluzeb diplo- matickeho sboru - SSDS). The SSDS was established by the MFA in May 1951 to furnish goods and services for the sup- port of foreign diplomatic installations in Prague. It has been reported that the SSDS is thoroughly infiltrated by the StB, and that its real function is to penetrate the installations it supports. Its initial Chief was Dr. Oldrich FABIAN; as of January 1958, its Chief was Dr. Vaclav SYNEK. E. Departments Under the Present Third Deputy Minister, Jan BUSNIAK: 1. Territorial Department VII - Far East. a. Far Eastern affairs on the pre-1949 Ministry were admin- istered along with Southeast Asian, USA and Latin American affairs in Section 11/5 under the direction of Dr. Gustav SOLAR. After 1949, Section A-V under (fnu) KARPISEK was responsible for the same group of countries, with Dr. (fnu) GAISKY directly responsible for Far Eastern affairs. By February 1956 there was a Near East/Asia Department lead by Otto KLICKA; Alois BARPUSEK was probably directly responsible for Far Eastern affairs. b. In early 1958 the Asian Department was broken down into three new departments responsible for the Far East, the Near East, and Southeast Asia. The present Territorial Department VII was headed in January 1958 by Mecislav JABLONSKY, who was appointed Ambassador to Iran in May 1959. His successor in Department VII was probably Ing. Emanuel BRAZDA, who became Ambassador to Tunisia in November or December 1959. The present head of Depart- ment VII is Dr. Anton VACEK. Chief of the Japanese Desk is (fnu) LENAR.

The history of the administration of Southeast Asian affairs in the MFA closely parallels that of Far Eastern affairs. No major organizational distinction between the two areas was made until the reorganization of early 1958. Mecislav JABLONSKY was listed as also head of Department VIII in January 1958. He was succeeded by Jan ZITEK after his assignment of Iran in May 1959. Alois BARTUSEK is ZITEK's Deputy. 3. Territorial Department IX - Near East/Africa. Logically enough for the time, Near Eastern and African affairs were administered under Section 11/3 (Antonin TONES), the Western European division of the pre-1949 Ministry. After the 1949 reorganization, Middle East and African nations were grouped in Section A-IV/5, supervised by Dr. Vladimir REISEL. As of February 1956, the chief of the Near East Section was Dr. Frantisek ZACHYSTAL; chief of the Israel/Turkey desk was (fnu) POLACEK; chief of the Egypt desk was (fnu) MATOUSEK; and chief of the India, Afghanistan, Iran desk was Otaker CHYLE. ZACHYSTAL was listed as Chief of Department IX in January 1958 and remained in that position until he became Ambassador to the UAR in January 1960. There is reason to suspect that Territorial Department IX has been divided into two new Departments, Department IX for Near Eastern Affairs and Department X for African affairs. Whether the suspected division is formal or merely functional, the individuals presently responsible for Near Eastern Affairs are Cenek HEROLD, Chief, and his Deputy, (fnu) KVACEK; and the indi- viduals responsible for African affairs are Ivan ROHAL-ILKIV and his Deputy, Bedrich HRUSKA. F. Departments Under the Present Fourth Deputy Minister, Jiri NOSEK: 1. Archives and Documentation Department. The Ministry Archives were maintained in Section 5 of Department I (Presidium) in the pre-1949 Ministry. Section Chief in early 1949 was Jiri PESEK, who continued in that position until at least 1950 when the Archives Section had become Section B-IV/l in BOREK's Division B. In January 1958, the Archives and Documentation Department was headed by Ing. Jan HANC. 2. International Organizations Department. a. The Department of International Organizations is presumed to be the organ responsible for international conferences and the UN. In the pre-1949 Ministry, Section II-6 of the Political Department, under Dr. Frantisek GOTTLIEB, held the responsibility for UN affairs and international Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915RO01200200002-4 Sanitized - Approved For Release : CIA-RDP78-00915R001200200002-4 -22- organizations. After the 1949 reorganization I C under Deputy Minister SEKANINOVA-CAKRTOVA was respon- sible for international organization affairs. b. In about 1955, the responsibility for international organizations, under the Third. Deputy Ministers was distributed as follows: United Nations - Dr. Zden.ek TRHLIK. International Law - Jan CECH (until late 1958). International Treaties - Dr. Zdenek AUGEN RALLER (until 1958). (4) Research and Study Section - Josef HANC (until 1958). c. In the reorganized Ministry of 1958, international organi- zations responsibility was relegated to a single depart- ment under the fourth Deputy Minister. Its chief as of October 1960 is Dr. TRHLIK. It is interesting to specu- late that the apparent deflation of the international organization responsibilities of the MFA is a result of the complete surrender by the Czechs to Moscow at the international conference table. Legal Department. The Legal Department (Department VI) in the pre-1949 Ministry was headed by Dr. Zdenek PROCHAZKA. After the 1949 reorganization, the Legal Department apparently merged with the international Organizations complex under Deputy Minister III and remained there until the 1958 reorgan- ization placed it as a separate department under Deputy Min- ister IV. The last definitely identified chief of the Legal Department was Dr. Jan CECH, who served from at least January 1958 until February 1959. He may have been succeeded by Vratislav PECHOTA, who was tentatively identified as Chief in April 1960. 4. Translation Division. Section 7 of Department III (Intelli- gence) in the pre-1949 Ministry was responsible for transla- tion services. Its chief in early 1949 was Alexius'BROZ. There is no information on the Translation Division between 1949 and 1958, when it was listed under Deputy Minister IV. Its Chief in January 1958 was Nadezda PELIKANOVA; in October 1960 its Chief was Jan BENES.

There was no single unit in the pre-19+9 Ministry charged with press responsibilities (information and propaganda).. Jaroslav JINDRA headed Section 6 of the IIIrd (Intelligence) Department and was responsible for foreign propaganda activity in artistic and scientific fields. A press archives was maintained under Section 7 of the same Depart- ment. After the 194.9 reorganization, Richard SLANSKY, the profligate brother of Rudolf SLANSKY, headed the Press Section (Section III) under Division A. b. Sometime about 1955 the Press Department had moved under the fourth Deputy Minister. The chief of the Press Depart- ment was Miroslav GALUSKA in February 1956, Frantisek PISEK from prior to January 1958 until April 1959, and probably Antonin LIEHM until September 1960, when he was succeeded by Pavel BORSKY. Under PISEK the Press Department was divided into two divisions: LIEHM headed the Information Division and Miloslav HRUZA headed the Propaganda Division (probably until March 1959, when he was posted to Israel). 6. Institute of International Law and Economics. Nothing is known of the Institute of International Law and Economics. It is possibly identical with the Institute for the Study of Inter- national Economics headed by Robert SCHMEIZ. However, other sources report the latter organization is under the control of the Ministry of Foreign Trade. 7. Department for Consular Services. a. In the pre-191+9 Ministry, various consular services were performed by five sections of Department V (Administration) under Ing. Odon PARA. The Passport and Visa Section (V-5) was directed by Dr. Vaclav KOZISEK. After the 1949 reor- ganization, passport and visa activities were grouped with the Courier Division (D-II) under Jan CUNAT, described as a member of the then Ministry of National Security. b. As of February 1956, the Consular Department was under the over-all direction of Dr. Karel BLAZEK (who was still in that position as of October 1960.) BLAZEK's predecessor, sometime prior to February 1956, was Miroslav MATOUSEK.

The Visa Division was headed in February 1956 by Jan CUNAT, who has been identified in that position as late as April 1959. The Passport Di- vision has been headed by Bohuslav JIRASKY from at least as early as February 1956 until as late as January 1958. c. In April 1959, it was reported that the Passport and Visa Divisions had been reorganized into three passport sections (a section for diplomatic travel, one for poli- tical travel, and one for commercial and economic travel), and two visa sections (a section for diplomatic travel, under Vaclav TATAR, and a section for all other categories under Jarmila MERGENTALOVA). 8. Operations Department. a. As it is organized in the present MFA, the Operations De- partment encompasses a sizeable group of support functions including the Ciphering Organ (code section); a "Special Division" whose function is unknown; an Administrative Division which handles incoming and outgoing mail, typing, and secretarial services; a Radiocommunication Division; and the Courier Division. In early 1949, a special "Section B," attached directly to the Office of the Foreign Minister, was responsible for telegraphic, cipher, and teletype communications. Its chief was Frantisek KLUBICKO, and his deputy was Frantisek VITKU. b. After the 1949 reorganization, the Cipher Section, headed by an unknown member of the Ministry of National Security, was located under Deputy Minister IV. The Radiocommunica- tions Section, under Division D, was headed by a (fnu) SIMANDL, and later, by an (fnu.) FEIX (until February 1951). Chief of the Courier Service in 1950-1951 was an (fnu) OUREDNICEK. Chief of Ciphers in about 1955 was Karel ZIZKA, who held that position until at least January 1958. At that date, the chief of the "Special Division" was Josef CASTA (a man of that name, otherwise unidentified, was posted to Vienna in December 1.958); the chief of the Ad- ministrative Division was Jaroslav BUBEL; the chief of the Courier Division was Josef' HANGLIK; and the chief of the entire Operations Department was Dr. Josef MAIKNER.
