German deep politician who attended Le Cercle
Count Hans Graf Huyn was a deep politician who attended Le Cercle meetings. He is mentioned in the Langemann Papers which included the minutes of a 1980 meeting of Le Cercle, in which Huyn reported having "consulted with the head of the Saudi security service about the establishment of a short-wave radio transmitting towards the Soviet Union. The Saudis were interested, he said, and had guaranteed finance, on the condition that a situation such as that created in Moscow by Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty must be avoided at all cost."
Hans Graf Huyn was son of the press attaché at the German embassy in Poland Johannes Franz Graf Huyn (1894-1941) and Liselotte von Philipp. He studied law, philosophy, history and languages at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and at universities in France and South America.
In 1955 he became an attaché at the German Foreign Office. In 1956 he participated as a secretary at the EEC negotiations in Brussels. From 1956 to 1957 he ran through diplomatic stations in Tunis and Dublin, and was used until 1959 at the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry. After work at the Embassy in Tokyo from 1959 to 1964 he was from June to August 1961 Permanent Deputy Ambassador in Manila. From 1963 to 1965 he was responsible in the European keynote of the political department of the Foreign Office of European Political Cooperation and the French-German friendship treaty.
