Chai [Junwu] [Chai Chengwen]:

[I] have received your telegram from the afternoon of [October] 17.  Concerning the question of the Embassy’s work in the future, the following is the reply:

(1)  The focal point of the embassy’s work is still keeping in contact with the North Korean government and following the North Korean government’s actions.  So the main force of the current personnel at Sineuiju should still be moved to Changseong.  If there is not too much to do, one section can be withdrawn.

(2)  A group of personnel can remain at Sineuiju solely for the handling of our entry and exit [document] processing.

(3)  After General Peng [Dehuai’s] arrival, Peng [Dehuai] and Kim [Il Sung] can set up mutual direct contact.

(4)  Chai [Junwu] and Zhu [Guang] should remain at Xichuan and maintain necessary diplomatic contact with Premier Kim.

Zhou Enlai

October 19 [1950]
