2. Editorial Note

On April 27, the National Security Council, in Action No. 1542, directed the Planning Board to undertake an immediate review of those sections of NSC 5409 pertaining to Afghanistan. This review was prompted by the recent Soviet aid agreement with Afghanistan. At its 285th meeting on May 17, the NSC discussed the Planning Board’s proposed changes in NSC 5409. For a memorandum of that discussion, see Document 118.
