Copy Nº 1

CABLE Nº 4277

to Cde. MAO ZEDONG

We have received your cipher message of 20 July. We consider your point of view about not insisting any more on including in the agenda the point about the withdrawal of foreign troops to be correct. The point about the withdrawal of foreign troops has been sufficiently well used by you in the negotiations to demonstrate your peacefulness on the one hand and the American reluctance to expedite the matter of peace on the other. Now this point can be deferred to another time without damage to the cause and it can be agreed not to include it in the agenda.

Товарищу МАО ЦЗЭДУНУ.

Вашу шифровку от 20 июля получили. Мы считаем правильной Вашу точку зрения насчёт того, чтобы не настаивать больше на включении в повестку пункта о выводе иностранных войск. Пункт о выводе войск достаточно хорошо использован Вами в переговорах для того, чтобы демонстрировать, с одной стороны, Ваше миролюбие и, с другой стороны, нежелание США ускорить дело мира. Теперь можно без ущерба для дела отложить этот пункт на другое время и согласиться не включать его в повестку.

ФИЛИППОВ
