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

The cable dated 25 September [1965] was received. Please have Counsellor Liu Xiaotao meet with the Director of [North] Korea's Export and Trading Office of the Foreign and Economic Trade Committee, Han Ho-jin, and express that we agree to transport the second batch of North Korea's aid to Vietnam (construction and engineering materials). However, as we are still negotiating with the [North] Vietnamese side over Vietnam's receiving these goods, request that the [North] Korean side temporarily suspend the shipment of materials. [You] will report to [North] Korea on the specific shipping dates and transfer protocol after we have reached an agreement with the Vietnamese side. At the same time, please ask the [North] Korean side to submit a shipping plan and a list of the supplies to us as soon as possible.
