To the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia

To Comrade Tito

The CC CPSU has received with satisfaction the communication from Comrade Kardelj stating that the leadership of the CC LCY looks positively on suggestions proposed in the letter from the CC CPSU of 22 June 1954. We are confident that this road corresponds to the vital interests of our peoples and our Communist Parties. We acknowledge that the Yugoslav comrades could be in a position to respond to our letter in the nearest future.

The CC CPSU is aware of the great importance of the question of Trieste to Yugoslavia. We too consider it propitious that it be resolved in accordance with justified interests of Yugoslavia. Should, for Yugoslavia, there exist a possibility of a resolution of this question in the nearest future then it is perfectly obvious and understandable to us that it must not be encumbered by premature publication of our negotiations.

24 July 1954 CC CPSU
