Document No. 19: Resolution by the Czechoslovak Party
Military Defense Commission on the Introduction of Emergency
Measures, September 14, 1961
This document is another resolution by the Czechoslovak party Central Committee. Unlike the document from July 25 (See Document No. 17), this one was prepared after the construction of the Berlin Wall. By now it was clear that there would be no imme- diate strong reaction forthcoming from the West, but it was still an open question whether Khrushchev would follow up with a separate peace treaty with East Germany, which would surely spark an even more serious crisis. This resolution relates to the implementation of emergency measures intended to deal with the possible consequences therefrom. There is still debate as to when Khrushchev gave up on the conclusion of the treaty, but it appears that at this point the Czechoslovaks were still being told to plan on that eventuality, as were the East Germans.Agenda: Approval of measures increasing combat readiness, ordered by the Supreme Commander of the Unified Armed Forces of the member-states of the Warsaw Treaty on September 8, 1961Attending members of the Czechoslovak Communist Party Central Committee's Military Defense Commission: Antonín Novotný, Viliam Široký, Jiří Hendrych, Lubomír Štrougal, Otakar Šimůnek, Bohumír LomskýResolution: The Czechoslovak Communist Party Central Committee's Military Defense Commissionacknowledges the report submitted by National Defense Minister Bohumír Lomský;agrees with the implementation of tasks recommended in the report;instructsComrade Novotný, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Czechoslovak Communist Party and President of the Republic
