(Testimony of Ambassador Llewellyn E. Thompson)

Mr. Slawson.
frequently do assist them. This goes back many years. But I haven't been myself concerned in this for probably 25 years, or even more.
Senator COOPER. But is it the practice that if a determination has been made that the individual is an American citizen, therefore entitled to what protections are given to American citizens, if necessary, loans will be made to assist them to return to the United States? Is that about the basis of the policy?
Ambassador THOMPSON. That is correct; yes, sir.
Senator COOPER. I think that is all I have.
Mr. Dulles.
Did you have any conversations at any time while you were Ambassador or after you returned to the United States with any Soviet official with regard to the Oswald case?
Ambassador THOMPSON. I discussed with the Soviet Ambassador the desire of the Commission to receive any documentation that they might have available, but I did not in any way discuss the case itself, nor did the Soviet official with whom I talked.
Mr. Dulles.
And do you know of any conversations of that nature that any other official of the Department had in connection with the Oswald case?
Ambassador THOMPSON. I do not myself know of any.
Mr. Dulles.
You probably would, would you not, if that had taken place---of any importance?
Ambassador THOMPSON. Off the record.
(Discussion off the record.)
Mr. Dulles.
Your testimony is you have no knowledge of any other conversations other than that of the Secretary of State, in connection with communications to and from the Soviet Government on this case?
Ambassador THOMPSON. That is correct. I know of no other cases where it was discussed with Soviet officials.
Mr. Dulles.
That is all I have.
Mr. Slawson.
Thank you very much, Mr. Ambassador.
(Whereupon, at 3:40 p.m., the President's Commission adjourned.)
