3. Secret; Immediate; Nodis. Drafted by Lisle and approved by Katzenbach.
/2/Beginning in 1967, the dates and transmission times of all outgoing Department of
State telegrams were in six-figure date-time-groups. The “Z” refers to Greenwich mean
161818. Subject: Czechoslovakia.
1. Following report sent by Ambassador Goldberg evening May 9:
“At Secretary’s request I sought out Fonmin Manescu at 5:30 PM to see if he had any info
or reaction to current rumors re Czechoslovakia.
Manescu said he had no info other than press reports and had not yet seen Czechs here
but would later in evening. Nor had he consulted with his govt. In response his query I
said I had no info other than press.
Manescu then made following personal comments which he later said he would not
object to being passed on to Secretary: Manescu was very concerned over lack of denial
from either Soviet or Czech official sources of current stories about Soviet troop
movements. He felt that if there were no official denial from both capitals within next
two hours, along lines of ‘imperialist fabrications,’ situation would be very serious. He
believes if confirmed situation would raise basic question whether any EE state can
pursue a policy in any way independent of USSR. He hoped that if current stories are true
that US would recognize not only the degree to which interests of all EE’s are involved,
but also that US interests would also be substantially prejudiced. So far as Romania is
concerned Manescu believes there is no division in country or Government and they
would stand against any intervention to last man.”

and without giving any indication knowledge your part of Manescu’s views.
