Future Soviet Moves in Vietnam [Khrushchev's successors find that the price he was willing to pay for disengagement was too high; they feel that they must support the territorial integrity of a socialist country and "national liberation" and maintain their position in the Communist world. China refuses to allow the USSR to gain any credit for assistance to North Vietnam unless its policies conform to Chinese strategy. New Soviet military aid may be air defense equipment, including SAM's, or military forces]. Special Memorandum No. 11-65, Sherman Kent, Chairman, Board of National Estimates. Apr. 27, 1965. 7 p. Security classification not given. SANITIZED copy. Released Mar. 3, 1978. Johnson Library, NSF, Countries, Vietnam, Vol. 33.
