FYN SI [STALIN]
In accordance with your directive dated 13.10.50 I had a meeting with KIM IL SUNG.
PAK HEON-YEONG [Pak Hon Yong] was present at the meeting. I read the text of your telegram to them. The content of the telegram caught KIM IL SUNG and PAK HEON-YEONG by surprise.
KIM IL SUNG stated that it was very hard for them [to accept Stalin's recommendation - AM], but since there is such advice they will fulfill it.
KIM IL SUNG asked me to read practical recommendations and ordered PAK HEON-YEONG to write them down. He also asked us to help him develop a plan for measures related to this question.
