“Request for Instructions on Handling the Technical Materials Mentioned by the [North] Korean Specialist Group during their Visit to China”

[To] the Relevant Departments and Committees of the Central Committee, all Central Committee Bureaus, and the Relevant Provincial, Municipal, and Autonomous Region People’s Committees and Foreign Offices:

On 18 December [1964], Li Yimang, Deputy Director of the Foreign Office of the State Council, commented on the Science and Technology Committee’s “Request for Instructions on Handling the Technical Materials Mentioned by the [North] Korean Specialist Group during their Visit to China” that “[I] am inclined to agree with the opinions of the Science and Technology Committee, otherwise [the situation] will become more chaotic. If approved, the document should be forwarded to all relevant departments and committees and provincial and autonomous region committees. Send it to [Vice] Premier Chen [Yi] for approval.” On 18 December, Vice Premier Chen Yi commented, “First, I approve for there to be more controls and for organized provision [of scientific materials]. Second, inform the [North] Korean side and provide [materials] through the National Science and Technology Committee. Send this to the Premier [Zhou Enlai] for approval.” On 24 December, Premier Zhou commented that “[I] am in agreement with views expressed in the report and with the comments of Chen and Li.” [We] are now sending the Science and Technology Committee’s report to you. Please act in accordance [with the report].
