The authority by whizz the FBI maintains representatives abroad and a definition of their sponsibilities have repeatedly been sought by CIA without avail. Discreet ].nq,t#,.r.Y to the State Department has disclosed a similar igna e.nce on the part of that department. The FBI, through its "? iai.son officer, has stated that its representatives conduct liaison with foreign govez nts on police :natters, espionage, and Co lunist affairs affecting the internal security of the United States, and of concern only to the 4Z I. The rzcaning, par tic a r .y of the last phrase, remains an clarified. In practice,, it appears to be interpreted as authority to conduct liaison on any subject pith foreign intelligence services and, if occasioned, to participate in intelligence operations. No case is known of a foreign service being Z'efor2'ed to CU by an I attache on the grounds that the at ter under consideration was not within Flit competence. The 11--z al z L,taches do not restrict their contacts to police or internal sec nri ter services, or their activi- ties to the countries to which they ostensibly are assigned. (PAD D) 3.

There is, in addit an annoyance to forei n services brought about by being pproacc1 d by two U.S. services on the ease or similar subjects. b. Foreign services repeatedly seek information on affairs extendin^; into the U.S. That such infor.iation can be obtained throuh CIA is expected, both as .:,.::matter of routine liaison and as one of return for infor:aatjoxt provided or activities conducted for CIA. In the past, CIA has been unable to comply with requests because of the Fl'I reluctance to release data through CIA to foreign to '!3I attache rather than use C Las as an unsatisfactory Channel, it Y+aay, be expected to do so, to the obvious future disregard of CIA. 5. During the past several months, serious efforts have been Made to avoid duplication by the CIA stations and FBI representa,- tives, and to insure coordination at 1 ashinaton and in the field. Some progress in this has been noted. The difficulties, real and potential, outlined above renain unsolved, however. They will con- tinue a long as FBI attaches with uxidewjnod responsibilities con. stitute a second U.S. intelligence ;service in the foreign field. 6. It is vi opinion that relations between CIA and the FBI have improved since the Directors net and discussed mutual probleas at luncheon, and since the iaiauguration of the regular monthly meetings. It is recom ended that the following actiion be taken That I press for a definite statement of functions of legal at- taches at the next monthly oeetin, and if' no satisfactory state- aent is forthcoming., that I take the matter pere l.ly to lair.

CIA did know of the ms's general responsibilities and interests with regard to interiaj security, but was not clear as to other interests. The FBI replied that its "interests ,are limit- less". It is only its operations which are closely limited.
