The commission is influen- tial in the economic planning activities of a number of Latin American countries. Its secretariat in Santiago includes some notably anti-US personnel. The Soviets, who have been making steady progress in gaining official and public acceptance in Chile, re- portedly were told recently they could increase their diplomatic staff there from 25 to 30, Guatemala: Security forces have reportedly made several hundred arrests in Guatemala City in an effort to find the Communist terrorists responsible for the murder of two Americans on 16 January. The capital has been relatively quiet for the past two days. In spite of strong security precautions the city remains tense, and Communist or right-wing extremists could carry out further assassinations at any time. 25 25X1 25X1 25X1 25X1 Approved For Release 2002/10/22 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO10700150001-6 Approved FCPRele *Colombia- USSR., Bogota has re- established re- lations with the Soviet Union, probably in an effort to broaden the market for Colombian exports. This step has been under negotiation for some months. The renewal of relations, which were broken in 1948, has been a prime objective of the Communist Party of Colombia. Its secretary general earlier this month told a party plenum that this would "benefit the revolution." The USSR now has diplomatic re- lations with six Latin American countries in addi- tion to Cuba, Yugoslavia. Tito has taken another move to re- store discipline in the faction-ridden Serbian Com- munist organization by putting one of his old cronies, Yugoslav party presidium member Petar Stambolic, in charge. This action comes less than a week after the announcement that another presidium member and long-time Tito associate, Veljko Vlahovic, is to take over the Belgrade city party organization. Stambolic's predecessor probably had to give way because of his failure to get a firm grip on the Serbian Communists, who have been growing more and more nationalistic. 25X 25X 25X1 20 Jan 68 Approved For ReI ase - ~fUIUUWOAT10700150001-6 25X Top ISeCV For Rase 2002/10/22 : CIA-RDP79T00975AW0700150001-6 I .- Top Secret Approved For Release 2002/10/22 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO10700150001-6
