To Comrade FILIPPOV [Stalin]

Comrade FILIPPOV.

I received your telegram of 29.8.1951. I agree that it is not advisable to take the initiative in inviting representatives of neutral states as monitors and witnesses at the present stage of the negotiations.

I have already communicated about this to Comrade KIM IL SUNG.

MAO ZEDONG

Товарищ Филиппов

Вашу телеграмму от 29 августа 1951 г. получил. Согласен с тем, что нецелесообразно проявление нами инициативы в приглашении представителей нейтральных государств в качестве контролёров и свидетелей на современном этапе переговоров.

Об этом я уже сообщил товарищу Ким Ир Сену.

Мао Цзэдун
