Secret

[to the] CPSU CC

At the instruction of Cde. Peng Dehuai Cde. Shi Zhe just now passed to us that according to available information the resolution of the KWP CC plenum concerning which the delegations of our Parties agreed to in Pyongyang has not been published in the DPRK press. Cde. Peng Dehuai personally thinks that it is necessary wait until tomorrow. If the resolution is not published tomorrow then both our delegations ought to send a telegram to the Korean comrades about the need to publish the CC resolution in the press according to our agreement in Pyongyang. If the KWP leadership does not do this then obviously the leaders of our delegation ought to go again to Pyongyang in order to correct the situation. If it will be necessary to convene not only a plenum but also a Party congress to do this, then this needs to be done.

We replied that we will pass this report to Moscow.

The Chinese comrades said that they will wait for a response from Moscow.

In the course of the discussion Cde. Shi Zhe said that the CCP CC has information that during the stay of our delegations in Pyongyang Cde. Kim Il Sung said among his associates that the arrival of the delegations means nothing less than the interference of two older brothers in the internal affairs of the Korean Worker's Party.

Right now it would be advisable for the time being to ask Cde. Ivanov what information he has about this issue.
