“To Cde. MAO ZEDONG. With great regret we have to inform you that the aircraft which left KULJA [Ghulja] a few days ago on which the delegation of democratic organizations of XINJIANG was travelling to the Political Consultative Conference in BEIPING happened upon unfavorable atmospheric conditions in the region of IRKUTSK and suffered an accident, during which both the pilots as well as the delegation perished.

We are taking steps so that a new delegation is sent from KULJA to the Political Consultative Conference in BEIPING, although with fewer delegates.

FILIPPOV”
