7 July 1957

I met with Kim Il Sung while fishing at the Chin-San Reservoir and had a conversation with him.

I informed Kim Il Sung that the Soviet government intends to make a suitable statement in support of the DPRK and PRC position in connection with the Americans' violation of the Korean Armistice Agreement.

Kim Il Sung said that this will be great support to the DPRK.

Kim Il Sung reported that 102% of the commitments for the semiannual plan for gross industrial output have been fulfilled. The fish catch plan was considerably underfulfilled (88%). This occurred as a consequence of the fact that the mackerel did not approach [the coast]. It was planned to catch up to 25,000 tons but only 400 tons were actually caught. However, said Kim Il Sung, the fish catch during the six months of the current year is considerably more than the corresponding period of last year and fishermen are promising to fulfill the annual plan.

Kim Il Sung reported that he intends to take a month's vacation after Ho Chi Minh visits the DPRK (Ho Chi Minh's arrival is expected on 8 July and [his] departure for the USSR on 12 July) and will go to a dacha located at the Suphun Hydroelectric Power Station's reservoir to rest.
