To Comrade KRASOVSKY
for Comrade Mao Zedong
Comrade Mao Zedong!
We have received your telegram of 8 September.
We agree to send a main military adviser and a group of military specialists as military advisers attached to the staff of the Volunteer troops in Korea.
We consider it advisable to resolve the question of sending military advisers to the armies and corps after the main military adviser familiarizes himself with the situation on location and presents his considerations on this question.
As main military adviser for the staff of the Volunteer troops in Korea we could send General of the Army Zakharov.
If you agree with this decision of ours, then General of the Army Zakharov can depart soon for Beijing for further movement to the location of the staff of the Volunteer troops in Korea.
