I visited Nam Il and reported that the Soviet government agrees to receive a DPRK delegation in June or another time convenient for the Korean side for familiarization with the activity of corresponding Soviet organizations in the use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes.

Nam Il thanked the Soviet government for the agreement to receive the DPRK delegation and said that June is a completely convenient time. Jeong Jun-taek, Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers, will head the delegation. The composition of the delegation and the date of departure will be reported separately.

Nam Il reported that the composition senior officials who will go to the Soviet Union for vacation and treatment at the invitation of the Soviet Government and CPSU CC was considered and approved at a Presidium meeting. They include Pak Jeong-ae [Pak Jong Ae], Nam Il, Jeong Jun-taek, Kim Yeong-ju (Deputy Chief of the CC Organization Department and brother of Kim Il Sung), Pak Seong-cheol [Pak Song Chol] (Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs), and others. The complete list indicating the time of their vacation will be sent next week.

Nam Il then also reported that the KWP CC delegation to the SED congress will be headed by Pak Jeong-ae, to the Czechoslovak Communist Party congress by Kim Chang-man, and to the Bulgarian Communist Party congress, Ri He-sun [sic].

I informed Nam Il that today we have an evening of friendship at the Embassy together with officials of the German Embassy in connection with the celebration of German-Soviet Friendship Week in the GDR. I have invited deputy minister[s], the chief of the MFA 1st department, and MFA officials who deal with the Soviet Union and GDR.
