There will be a meeting without the President in the Conference Room of the Under Secretary of State at 6:00 p.m. this evening,(1) at which time Mr. Ball will lead discussion of some of the outstanding issues. It will be helpful if members can find a little time to think about them beforehand. Among these issues are the following:(2)
1. What are the conditions for lifting the quarantine, either temporarily or permanently?
2. What other procedures for inbound inspection of shipments from the bloc are practicable?
3. What is our plan for the resumption, the continuance, and the possible abandonment of aerial reconnaissance?
4. What is our policy for the problem of definition of offensive weapons?
5. What verification do we expect before the re-export of offensive weapons?
6. What shape and definition can we give to our undertaking not to disturb the peace of the Caribbean?
7. What are the elements of a new policy toward refugee Cubans?
8. What political action can we take to exploit strains in the Castro regime?
9. What can be the long-term balance of assurance of our undertakings as against those of the USSR?
