Comrade Gao Gang:
[Concerning] personnel of Korean nationality currently in the northeast: besides mobilizing doctors, nurses and military personnel, all other technical personnel, such as drivers, factory and mine engineers, etc., are urgently needed in North Korea today. Please mobilize them to return to and serve their country. Inform [us] whether or not you can do this.
[Chinese Communist] Party Central Committee
