top.189(op) pr.PB No. 79
No. 825. Your proposal about the cessation of military activity in Korea we consider incorrect in the present situation, when American troops are suffering defeat and when the Americans more and more often are advancing a proposal about a cessation of military operations in Korea, in order to win time and prevent the complete defeat of the American troops.
The draft of the Soviet delegation should include the following:
1. The immediate withdrawal of all foreign troops from Korea.
2. The resolution of the Korean question must be left to the Korean people themselves.
The text of your preamble does not elicit objections.
By order of Instantsiia [i.e., Stalin].
