No. 70

To Minister Duk Shin Choi

From: The President

Thank you for your report s numbered 41 and 42 dated May 25th.

We should never express any anxiety with regard to President Ngo's visit. Whenever it is convenient for him to come we will see that it fits into our schedule. I do not think it is wise of you to press for an early visit. To my mind November is the ideal time and he might also wish to come when the weather is cool and not during the hot season.

I am afraid your observation that U Nu dislikes the Japanese may be based only on the fact that he wrote the book "Burma Under Japan Rule" but as you no doubt know many Japanese are now being employed for various projects in Burma and if the Burmese are really anti-Japanese they would not invite the Japanese to return and run their factories, etc.

I read with interest the political development of the different countries and it is rather difficult to keep track of who is who and what is what. It does not mean anything it a parson is anti-Communist and he does not fight Communism and also when his country permits the Communist party to function.
