At this time there is a pause between battles. Chairman Mao [Zedong] advises that Premier Kim [Il Sung] [be asked] whether he can go to Comrade Peng Dehuai’s place around the 10th of this month to meet the two comrades Gao Gang and Peng Dehuai to discuss military operations and supplies in North Korea, the training and arrangement of the North Korea People’s Army and organs after they enter the Northeast, and other questions.  [We] do not know Premier Kim’s thinking on these [questions].  Please ask [him] and inform [me] as soon as possible so that Comrade Gao Gang can be notified to go [there] quickly.
