[This marginal note was written onto a report by MAO ZEDONG at the point where the Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman stated on 29 March 1959 that Tibetans in India had not undertaken “illegal activities.”]

Note: Dear Indian friends: Don’t be credulous with the Tibetans. Their direction of the Tibet uprising is secret. Maybe we know what you don’t know! [1]

[1] Mao’s tone seems to imply that he suspects the Indians of feigning ignorance.
