GDR Embassy Beijing

ATTN: Comrade Liebermann, Foreign Ministry

The Red Guard newspaper “Dunfanjun [Dongfanghong/The Eastern Red]” from 27 October 1967 published the following statement in its international section:

Recently it has become noteworthy how the Korean revisionists display an ever increasing and raging anti-Chinese tendency. The Korean revisionists are afraid of the Cultural Revolution. They claim almost all representatives of the intelligence have been murdered in the Cultural Revolution. How vicious they are, how devilish, and what the heck. Out of allegiance to the Soviet Union and their anti-Chinese policies, the Korean revisionists completely deny the enormous merits of our heroic volunteers who supported Korea in its war of resistance against the U.S. The Kim Il Sung Group is furiously slandering us and states, our support for Korea during the war with the U.S. was a result of our “national egoism” and we had acted out of “self-interest”. Even more spiteful is the accusation by the Korean revisionists “we” had “provoked” the Korean War. This shows in all clarity how deep the Korean revisionists have sunk. Now they even dug out the graves of our volunteers who died as heroes in the Korean War. What further things will we allow them to do if we continue to tolerate such! We want to warn Kim Il Sung and his minions in all seriousness that those who side with the U.S. and Revisionism [USSR] and continue an anti-Chinese policy are not expected to live through a happy ending. Sooner or later the Korean people will rise up and call them to account.
