Notify Korea on the Border Crossing Issue of Supplies for Aiding Vietnam

To the [Chinese] Embassy in [North] Korea:

The cable dated 2 November [1965] was received. The [North] Korean said has already, or will soon, ship 28 train cars of material aid for Vietnam. The transportation procedures have been handled by the railway transport system (trans. note--xitong). We do not have to ask them to go through diplomatic channels to work out the procedures with us again.

The contents of this cable can be reported to the [North] Korean side. It is a notification. There is no need to reply. If the [North] Korean side asks, you can report that intermodal transportation will be used for these materials. The exact procedures can be handled by the railway authorities of the two countries.
