To Cde. Filippov. In addition to my Nº 2390.

At 2212 I received the following telegram of Mao Zedong addressed to you:

"To Cdes. Filippov and Zhou Enlai. I agree with the opinion in the 11 October telegram.

Our troops have not yet moved forward and I have already given orders to halt the execution of the plan to cross into Korea.

Gao Gang has been charged with explaining to the Korean comrades regarding the fact that the Korean comrades should pursue a new operational regrouping and plan of operation in accordance with the situation.

Mao Zedong".
