MONGOLIAN PEOPLE’S REVOLUTIONARY

PARTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE POLITBURO

RESOLUTION [MPRP CC Politburo]

15 July Ulaanbaatar

1963 No. 24

ON JOINING THE WARSAW PACT

At present, international reactionary forces headed by the American imperialists are intensifying preparations for war, and increasingly threaten the peace and security of the socialist camp countries and the people of the world.

In particular: the fact that the American imperialists are increasingly using the “security treaty” concluded between the USA and Japan [on 19 January 1960] in order to turn Japanese territory into their own military base, that they are trying to equip the Japanese army with nuclear weapons—creates a real threat to the freedom and sovereignty of the MPR, and to the efforts of the Mongolian people to construct socialism.

In such threatening circumstances, it is increasingly necessary to strengthen the unity of the socialist camp countries on the principled basis of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism.

The Warsaw Pact, concluded between European socialist countries in 1955, has in reality become a reliable guarantee of freedom, sovereignty, peaceful construction of socialism and communism, of peace and security of peoples of all socialist countries. The armies of Warsaw Pact states are equipped with modern weaponry and technology, have mastered its usage, have strengthened their defense capacities and honestly carry out their duties on behalf of the international communist and workers’ movement.

Being conscious of the aforementioned threat, and noting the necessity of strengthening this country’s defense capacity, especially by training our people’s army in the use of modern military weapons and technology, and by allowing its generals, officers and fighters to master modern military science, the MPRP Central Committee Politburo RESOLVES:

1. Consider it appropriate for the MPR to join the Warsaw Pact, which has become a reliable foundation of freedom, sovereignty, peaceful construction of socialism and communism, of peace and security of peoples of all socialist countries.

2. Instruct the Council of Ministers / C[omrade] Tsedenbal / to put, in the proper form, a request to join the Warsaw Pact to the depository of the Warsaw Treaty, the government of the P[olish] P[eople’s] R[epublic].
