104-10414-10124: MEXICO CITY STATION HISTORY

"(There was) development of access agents through the recruitment of informants who had a bona fide social or business relationship with Soviet officials. From the time the station opened, several Soviet officials were singled out for recruitment approaches but none were successful. One of them, AEIMPULSE (201-185353) was approached through LIEMPTY-3 (an access agent) in 1961 by REDACTED, the Soviet Bloc case officer in Mexico. AEIMPULSE remained in development over several years in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America until it was decided by Headquarters that he was probably a provocation agent."
