  • The Secretary of Defense

  • Presidential Determination—Aid to Indonesia

On the recommendation of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the Administrator of the Agency for International Development, the President has decided that no public determination with respect to aid to Indonesia should be made at this time, in view of the unsettled conditions in the South Pacific area. The limited programs, however, of economic and MAP assistance which have resulted from the reviews conducted by the Secretaries of State and Defense are essential to the national interest and are to continue. The Secretaries of State and Defense will report to the President on a quarterly basis the results of their continuing review of these programs.
