The Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Public Security Send Work Teams to Xinjiang to Collect Materials

[To the] Party Committee and the Foreign Affairs Office, Public Security Office, and Foreign Affairs Department of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region: (Top Secret)

As instructed by the Central Government, the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Public Security will send a work team to your region to collect twenty pieces of evidence on the illegal activities of the Soviet Union’s two consulates in Xinjiang. The team will collect the evidence in collaboration with the relevant agencies in your region for the purpose of abolishing the two consulates. The team will consist of seven members, namely, Liu Yirong, an advisor to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Xu Huang, Deputy Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Department of Consular Affairs; Guo Yumin, Deputy Director of the First Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security; Hu Shaopu, Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security Deputy Section Director; and Dai Bohan, Wang Houli and Qiu Minglun, Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security staff members. They will depart separately tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

As this task is crucial, and the issue is rather complicated and the time spent should not be too long (tentatively set at three weeks), we hope that the regional Party Committee will provide guidance and assistance as to how to mobilize resources and get the job done.
