In acknowledging the receipt of your letter of October 3, 1955, I have the honor to inform you that, by the letter of this date, I have confirmed to His Excellency Chung W.

The new Government of the Republic of Vietnam under the leadership of the President NGO-DINH-DIEM is extremely desirous of seeing establish the close cooperation between the two countries under the war by which we lead together for the defence of our liberty and that of other democratic countries.

At this moment when the relations between the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Vietnam are going to be entered into a new phase, it is most agreeable for me to emphasize the preponderant role which, in front of deverse missions of goodwill, personally you have played in favor of the establishment and of the reinforcement of this relations.
