  • Description

    President Jimmy Carter appealed to the people of the United States not to over react to the recent disclosure that there are Soviet combat troops stationed in Cuba. Echoing Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's statements about the presence of the brigade, President Carter said the country should respond in a calm way. Nevertheless he said both his administration and the Congress considered it a serious matter and Mr. Vance would continue to pursue it with the Soviets. He assured the American people however that the troops in Cuba were not equipped to attack the United States.
