Comrade Liu Shaoqi:

(1) It is approved that Su Yu may deploy four divisions in naval operation maneuver.

(2) The first several phrases in the preface of the credit agreement, which mention China's compensation to the Soviet Union, should not be omitted.

(3) The treaty and the agreements should be published by both sides on the same day, and you will be specially informed about the date.

(4) [Chen] Boda has written an editorial for the Xinhua News Agency, which we will look over and send to you tomorrow. Please ask [Hu] Qiaomu to scrutinize it, and then publish it at the same time the treaty is published.


Mao Zedong
