Subject: We Have Already Responded to the Soviet Memorandum of 2 June and the Additional Oral Statement of 11 June

[To the] Xinjiang Foreign Affairs Office and the Party Committee of the [Xinjiang Uyghur] Autonomous Region:

On the 26th [of June], Vice Minister Ji [Pengfei] handed our memorandum responding to the Soviet memorandum of 2 June and the additional oral statement off 11 June to Soviet Ambassador [Stepan V.] Chervonenko (the full text is attached). Chervonenko denied that the Soviets were responsible, and said that there were many people who crossed the border—more than usual—and he continued with the unreasonable demands that our side send people to work [with the border crossers]. Vice Minister Ji rejected [Chervonenko’s statement], and pointed out that he had nothing new to talk about, [saying] we have already replied to the memorandum and to please transmit it to the Soviet government. Chervonenko agreed to do so.
