To: Comrade Nicolae Ghenea,

Deputy Foreign Minister

Regarding your telegram no. 01/06956, I would like to inform you that on June 16th I was received by Kim Jae-bong [Kim Jae Bong], Deputy Foreign Minister. He asked me to send his most sincere gratitude to the leadership of the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for all the efforts undertaken to support the DPRK.

On June 18th I received an answer stating that the DPRK gives its approval that the letter to the US Senate and House of Representatives, adopted after the Supreme People’s Assembly session on April 6th, be submitted to the US Department of State, according to the proposals made by the Romanian officials.

Kim Jae-bong asked that we inform the North Korean [government] on the date when these documents were sent and on the potential reactions of the American official who would receive them.

Signed: Aurelian Lazar
