2 November 1960

The Chinese military delegation gave a reception at the Okryugwan Restaurant.

During the reception I invited Kim Il, Kim Chang-man, Ri He-sun [sic], and Pak Yong-guk, members of the KWP CC delegation, to my place for dinner on 3 November. The invitation was accepted.

I informed Kim Chang-man that, as the delegation had requested, the scheduled TU-104 aircraft is being delayed and will fly from Pyongyang on 4 November in order to deliver the KWP CC delegation to Moscow.

Kim Chang-man expressed gratitude.

In connection with the interest manifested by officials of the KWP CC International Department to what would be published in Moscow about the arrival of the KWP CC delegation, I told Kim Chang-man that a report would be published in the Soviet press that a DPRK Party-government delegation had arrived to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution.

Kim Chang-man expressed gratitude and said that in their press they will make a report about the departure of a DPRK Party-government delegation for Moscow for a celebration of the 43rd anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution.

I invited Kim Il Sung to my place to a dinner which I was holding in connection with the departure of the KWP CC delegation for Moscow, saying in the process that "we would be glad to see you, Cde. Kim Il Sung, at our place for dinner".

Kim Il Sung expressed gratitude and noted jokingly, "delegation members are going to Moscow to work, but why am I being invited to dinner[?]". Then he said that "I am always glad to be at your place. I will look whether I have time and if I can, I will come".
