8 October 1950

8 October 1950. Kim Il Sung invited me to his office and informed me that he received from Mao Zedong a telegram in which the latter explained that the Chinese government has decided to send a volunteer army to Korea to give assistance to the Koreans.

The Chinese have already designated a command for the battlefront and requested that the Koreans send to them a representative in order to inform them about the military situation in Korea and to agree on the procedure for introducing Chinese troops to Korean territory.

This evening, Minister of Internal Affairs Pak Il-u [Pak Il U] will depart for Mukden [Shenyang] for a meeting with the Chinese commanders of the battlefront.
