Kh'anh has ordered General Dinh, recently given responsibility for resolving the tribal difficulties in Darlac and Quang Duc provinces, to occupy the Special Forces camp from which the hostages were rescued yesterday. Khanh agreed to delay the operation only long enough to permit the evacuation of US Special Forces advisers in the camp. The premier plans the early arrest of certain Vietnamese, French and tribal personalities alleged to have been the instigators of the recent Rhade re- bellion. He would also delay for several weeks a prom- ised tribal congress on the ground that to hold it now would suggest government responsiveness to Rhade pressures. The hard line now taken by Khanh threatens to un- do progress made during the past week in inducing re- bellious Rhade paramilitary units to return to their camps and in creating the basis for negotiations between the government and the tribesmen. The occupation in force of the Special Forces camp will, in particular, be likely to be interpreted by the Rhade as evidence of government duplicity and might lead to a further out- break of armed uprisings by the tribesmen. In Saigon, fresh coup rumors over the week end led to the reinforcement of normal security forces by airborne and marine units.

The 17-man High National Council, after being formally launched on 26, September by Minh and Khanh, has begun work on a provisional constitution and the selection of a provisional national assembly. Pharr Khac Suu, an elderly nationalist politician imprisoned by Diem, has been elected chairman of the council. 25X1 25X1 25X1 28 Sept 64 DAILY BRIEF 2 25X1 A roved For Release 2003/04111 C1 A-RDP79T00975A00790 230001-9 Approved For-Release 2003/04/11 : CIA-RDP79T0097; p07900230001-9 REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO ,#IEOP91CDVILLE r.~...J \..t Kikwit ma / i'roe,ncraI houndartes have been znterpolrrtcd /rnrn existing I 45774 ! maps and intelligence reports. and are not de/teit'c' J _ S _ GL1ma .} t Y 7/RWANDA ht: v,~,;ra + ?KIG)LI Kabalo .

BUJUMBURA Congo: Government forces are stalled in the nort moist, and in the east the rebel build up around Bukavu continues, Strong rebel resistance has stalled a combined mercenary-gendarme force east of Lisala. Another government force, recently repulsed at Boende, has withdrawn to await air support and reinforcements. The rebel build up north and west of Bukavu continues. There have been some skirmishes southwest of the city. Rebel leaders Gbenye and Soumialot refused to let the International Red Cross aircraft, which ar- rived in Stanleyville on 25 September, evacuate any Europeans or Americans. The plane returned to Bangui on 26 September. The five US consular offi- cials are reported to be in good health, although under house arrest. The Red Cross mission leaders reported that Gbenye and Soumialot appeared to have little control or influence over their troops, and that the troops consider the Europeans, especially the Americans, as guarantees against bombing attacks. The mission described the situation in Stanleyville as' very unstable, because of bitterness between the civilians and the army. Food was in extremely short supply, and near chaos reigned outside the city. The US ambassador in Nairobi reports that all indications are that the OAU Congo conciliation com- mission chairman Prime Minister Kenyatta has de- cided that Tshombe "must go," and that foreign support, especially US, must be withdrawn. Kenyatta, according to Ambassador Attwood, has been sold completely on a "political solution;' (continued) 28 Sept 64 Approved DAILY BRIEF 0230001-9 25X1 000, Approved For Release 2003/04/11 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO0 900230001-9 NOUN thinks the rebels are reasonable, and believes that if ON" ISM they were brought into the government, a cease-fire IMENOMM and elections would follow.

There is also no indication that the planned cease-fire between the republicans and royalists in Yemen will soon be achieved. The situation is com- plicated. by power rivalries and tribal-religious dis- putes within the republican ranks. The Egyptians have been trying to resolve these differences, and until they do, steps toward a settlement with the royalists are unlikely. The republicans are said to be less than enthu- siastic about the Nasir-Faysal agreement. At the Arab summit conference earlier this month, Nasir and Faysal reportedly agreed to establish a "com- mission" of ten Yemenis, five from each side, with Egyptians and Saudis as observers. After a cease- fire is arranged, this body is to discuss the forma- tion of a Yemeni council, which would include some royalist as well as republican elements. The Imam, however, would almost certainly be excluded. Faysal evidently is ready to accept this, and, to facilitate a settlement, would probably subsidize the Imam's exile if Nasir would withdraw most of his troops from Yemen. The Egyptians, in return, ap- parently are willing to sacrifice republican President 25X1 Sallal who has been little more than a figurehead for some time. 28 Sept 64 DAILY BRIEF Approve or a ease - oo1-s 25X1 '\\\\\\\\\\O\\~O~O~~~O~~~~~~~~~0~~~~0~ 0~~0~~~000~\\O\0~~000~~0~0~~0\ Approved F NMMMM~ East Germany - West Germany: The East Germans have levied new demands on West Germany for as yet unknown concessions in interzonal trade (IZT). The East Germans insist that Bonn accept them in principle by the end of September and work out detailed agreements by the end of the year. Many of the demands are unacceptable to West Germany ac- cording to the West German IZT negotiator, Leopold, who will recommend to Bonn that the FRG not nego- tiate under pressure of an "ultimatum." Leopold believes the timing of the request strongly suggests East Germany may bring pressure to bear by interfering with civilian autobahn traffic or serving notice of abrogation of the IZT agreement by 30 Sep- tember. It is unlikely, however, that the abrogation threat would be carried out when the agreement ex- pires 1 January 1965. The East Germans derive con- siderable economic benefit from trade with West Germany. Abrogation of the agreement, moreover, would create an unfavorable atmosphere for Khrushchev's visit to Bonn, now slated for early next year. :S 25X1 28 Sept 64 DAILY BRIEF 6 25X1 Approved or a ease - 30001-9 nhh.-,..,., C.... ~..1..~~..

The embassy expects, however, that Chilean negotiations with the copper companies will be hard and probably pro- longed.. Frei wants refining to be done in Chile, with Chile having a voice in marketing and some form of participation in new investment. Frei added that he realizes the companies must have assured stability if they are to undertake increased inputs of capital. ~\ I Frei says his requirements for external assist- ance will be large, but he is optimistic concerning refinancing of the already sizable foreign debt. He stressed, that foreign assistance can be justified only in proportion to the extent of Chile's internal effort. 28 Sept 64 \\ Approved I DAILY BRIEF 25X1 230001-9 \\ INIM\ ~~ ~ ~oo~oooooo ~ ~ ~o~ ~ o~ o ~ oo ~ oo ~ ooo 25X1 25X1 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/04/11 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07900230001-9 Approved For Release 2003/04/11 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07900230001-9 Approved or Release 2003/04/11 CIA-RDP79T00975A007900 30001-9 25X1 Spain: Coreign Minister Castiella told Ambas- sador Woodward on 25 September that his govern- ment never believed the US Government had any responsibility for the recent attack near Cuba on the Spanish ship, Sierra de Aranzazu.
