This is the most important part of the reply.
Mao Zedong spoke more sharply. He is against any participation in the mediation, against any kind of participation by the CCP in the negotiations.
The Guomindang will agree to any conditions now, but this must not be allowed.

Shi Zhe spoke directly about this.
