Phạm Ngọc Thạch Will Visit the Soviet Union and China to Discuss Cultural Cooperation

Foreign Cultural Liaison Committee,

When our embassy hosted a dinner for musicians visiting China, Division Head Vietnamese Cultural Liaison Committee Ninh Văn Phan told the following to Chinese Charge D’Affaires Du. First, Director of the Committee Phạm Ngọc Thạch will visit the Soviet Union in February to discuss Soviet-Vietnamese Cultural Cooperation Plan of 1964. On his way back he will discuss the Chinese-Vietnamese supplementary cultural cooperation plan of 1964 in Beijing. Second, DRV has drafted the supplementary plan and submitted to Vietnamese Prime Minister Phạm Hùng, who is still too busy to review and endorse it. The supplementary plan is five or six times of the one for last year, not including direct contacts between government institutions such as between the departments of medicines. Phan then said that the DRV would mainly learn from China and reduce contacts with Eastern European countries in the future. Because Eastern European culture was filled with revisionism, DRV would only maintain ceremonial contacts with Eastern European countries and focus on science and technology.

范玉纯将赴越南苏中商谈文化合作计划

对外文委:

我宴请访华音乐家时,越文委司长宁文潘向我杜参赞透露一、范玉纯主任将于二月赴苏商谈越苏1964年文化合作计划,(返国途中将在北京与我商谈1964年补充文化合作计划)(画线),二、越方补充计划已拟就。报总理府,因范雄副总理忙,还未批下来。(补充计划要比去年增加5—6倍,还不包括有关部门,如医药部等的直接往来项目,宁又说越文化艺术今后主要学习中国,计划与东欧国家来往很少,因其文化充斥修正主义毒素。即使来往也是礼节性的)(画线),且主要是科技方面的。
