Nixon, Allende, and Castro
President Médici meeting with Richard Nixon in the White House.In 1971, President Richard Nixon and Médici discussed coordinating their efforts to overthrow Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Chile’s Salvador Allende. National security advisor Henry Kissinger’s account of the December 9, 1971, White House visit by Médici was written “for the president’s file” and classified Top Secret. It was declassified on September 4, 2008, and made public in July as part of a State Department publication on U.S. foreign policy.
Kissinger’s memo shows that it was Nixon who raised the subject of Allende during the meeting, asking for Médici’s views on Chile: “Médici said Allende would be overthrown”. [Nixon] then asked whether Médici thought that the Chilean armed forces were capable of overthrowing Allende. Médici replied that he felt that they were, and [he] made clear that Brazil was “working towards this end.” The memo notes that Nixon and Médici also discussed whether Cuba should have readmission to the Organization of American States. For his part, Médici noted that Peru was trying to persuade the OAS to consider readmitting Cuba and asked Nixon how they should cooperate to oppose the move. Nixon said he would study the issue and reply to Médici “privately.” The OAS voted to lift sanctions on Cuba in 1974.”
