    Telegram from Stalin to Mao stating that because of the conditions of production and transportation, it is almost impossible to ensure additional supplies (in the amount of the proposed one-fifth of the value of all applications from the September 8 telegram), and at the same time supply six infantry divisions with arms and equipment by the end of the year. Stalin states that they can take Mao's additional order on the delivery of military equipment in 1951, equal to one-fifth of the total cost of China's application, only on the condition that the supply of weapons and equipment for the six divisions are postponed for six months.
