265. Memorandum From the President’s Special Assistant (Rostow) to President Johnson1
You may wish to know that Dobrynin came in at 5 p.m. to see Sect. Rusk on one question: Is the U.S. likely to respond to their note on the Middle East? He wanted to know if newspaper accounts of a complete brush-off by the Israelis of the Soviet proposal was shared by the U.S.
Sect. Rusk told him that it was likely that we would be getting a response to him in the next several days. The Soviet paper gave us certain problems, but our response was not a complete brush-off.
