Record of Conversation Between Polish Politburo Member
Zenon Kliszko and Soviet Leader Leonid Brezhnev, Moscow

(June 24, 1967)

In this conversation, Brezhnev describes discussions he's had with North Vietnamese leaders, who only want the U.S. bombings to end in order to open negotiations. He also discusses the outcome of the Arab-Israeli war at the UN General Assembly; even though the assembly condemned Israel, the Arabs are shaken by defeat. The only hope for the Arabs is the support of the USSR. He has also warned Fidel Castro not to push things too far.  To read the record of this conversation, please click here.
