26. National Security Action Memorandum No. 2861


  • The Secretary of State
  • The Secretary of Defense
  • The Director, Bureau of the Budget


  • United Nations Cyprus Force

The President has decided that the U.S. will provide troop airlift free of cost to the United Nations where countries contributing forces to the United Nations Cyprus Force are unable to furnish their own transportation. The President expects that this particular airlift will be absorbed within the airlift capability of the Department of Defense and that no additional funds will be required by the Department.
