CABLE Nº 2220

by telegraph

PEKING, TO THE SOVIET AMBASSADOR

Pass the following to MAO ZEDONG:

“To Cde. MAO ZEDONG. 1. Your request for aviation equipment, naval equipment, and advisers has been received. WANG JIAXIANG should have already informed you that these requests will be fulfilled as soon as possible.

2. In a conversation with ROSHCHIN and ARKHIPOV LIU SHAOQI expressed the opinion that there are those among the Soviet specialists in China who China could do without since the need for them had disappeared [otpala]. We request the names of such specialists be reported so we can recall them immediately.

[Translator’s note: the following paragraph was highlighted in the left margin] 3. There were Korean comrades here. I will inform you in a few days especially about the results of the conversation with them.

4. WANG JIAXIANG passed us the materials you sent about matters in India. At the same time as this information was received that the Indian comrades have admitted their mistakes and have made common cause with the line of the Communist Party of China. I think that after this there is no need for a special statement against these comrades. It is necessary only to observe [ponablyusti – SIC] that they in fact pursue the change in their policy they have announced.

Greetings to the friends!

3 May

FILIPPOV [Stalin]

for Cde. ROSHCHIN: please familiarize ARKHIPOV with the content of point two of this telegram.
