The Soviet Embassy in Peking remains under a virtual state of siege and the Chinese appear to be taking steps to make the situation there intolerable. According to press reports no Soviet diplomats have left the embassy since yesterday, when the Chinese warned embassy personnel to remain inside the com- pound in order to avert "serious incidents. " East European diplomats, who have been taking in food and other necessities to the beleaguered Rus- sians, have been warned that their safety cannot be guaranteed if they persist. In this connection, Mon- golian and other diplomats re ortedl raised the ques- tion of diplomatic immunity. hinese Foreign Ministry representa- tives replied that this was a "remnant of bourgeois institutions, " and that a country carrying out a revo- lution "does not recognize bourgeois norms. " The embassy has been without its Chinese labor force since late last month. Operation of the installa- tion, already difficult, will be impossible after fuel and food supplies run out. The Chinese could make the situation untenable even sooner by cutting off water and electricity. 25X1 2 1 2 1 (continued) 9 Feb 67 Approved For Releose 2003/05/19 : CIA-RDP79T00975V4009600200001-3 Approved For Re The Soviets are still hanging on, apparently hoping to ride out the current crisis. The TASS correspondent in Singapore told another newsman on 1 February that Moscow would not take the initiative in a break. The Soviets, however, may be planning as a last resort to withdraw their diplomats entirely without formally breaking relations. 9 Feb 67 25X1 25X1 Approved For Rel~ase 2003/05/19 : CIA-RDP79T00975A009604200001-3 25X1 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/05/19 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO09600200001-3 Approved For Release 2003/05/19 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO09600200001-3 Approved For Re ease 2003/05/19 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO096 0200001-3 Chile: Senatorial stalling on President Frei's proposed constitutional revision makes its ultimate adoption doubtful. Although Frei's amendment allowing a president to dissolve congress and call new elections was ap- proved by the Chamber of Deputies on 1 February, the Senate will not vote on it until April. By that time, municipal elections will have been held and the outcome will affect the fate of the bill. If Frei's Christian Democratic Party makes a poor showing, his enthusiasm for early congressional elections will diminish. In the meantime, the Senate appears to have shifted ground on the issue that provoked Frei's pro- posal. Socialist Senator Salvador Allende, the pro- Castro president of the Senate, reportedly stated on 7 February that the Senate will place no further ob- stacles in the way of foreign travel by President Frei, now that it has humiliated him by forcing can- cellation of his US visit. Because of the Senate's negative vote on his own travel, Frei has not yet decided whether Foreign Minister Valdes will attend the inter-American meet- ings in Buenos Aires next week. However, the US ambassador in Santiago expects Valdes to go. 9 Feb 67 Approved For ReI ase 2003/05/19 : CIA-RDP79T00975A0096002 001-3 25X1 25X1 25X1 Approved For Rele 25X1 NOTES Ethiopia: Ethiopian officials-are hinting that, to get Soviet agreement to halt arms deliveries to the Somali Republic, Emperor Haile Selassie may have to agree to a smaller US role in Ethiopia. 25X1 He goes to Moscow on e ruary after his visit to Washington, where he will probably raise the question of his need for military hardware to meet the threat to his empire he sees developing in the Red Sea basin. Congo (Kinshasa) - Belgium: For the first time since early December, President Mobutu is in direct communication with Union Miniere and the companies associated with it. Both sides think an agreement may be possible on the basis of the Belgian group's proposal for an international "association" to mine and market the Congo's copper under contract. Nevertheless the two sides still differ over several major points.
