To MATVEYEV [RAZUVAYEV V.N.]
RE: # 1298
We consider correct the decisions adopted by Kim Il Sung at his meeting with You, in particular, regarding the combining of the duties of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and Defense Minister in the hands of Kim Il Sung, the establishment of the Staff at the office of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, the formation of six divisions and withdrawal of manpower reserves from South Korea.
The formation of six divisions must be accelerated. Necessary armaments, ammunition, and other materials will be supplied from October 5 to October 20.
As far as the question about the expediency of recommending that Kim Il Sung ask the Chinese friends to dispatch drivers to Korea, You may give such advice but without citing Moscow.
