136. Editorial Note

Although the United States never broke diplomatic relations with Uganda, the Department of State closed the U.S. Embassy in Kampala on November 10, 1973, due to security concerns and threats to U.S. citizens by high-ranking Ugandan officials. Foreign Relations, 1969–1976, volume E–6, Documents on Africa, 1973–1976, Documents 240249 describe the decision. The West German Embassy in Kampala represented U.S. interests in Uganda.
