[Stepan] Chervonenko: In accordance with the Soviet Communist Party’s request [for me to do this task], please allow me to use this opportunity to inform you of the following, and please relay it to the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee:

The Soviet Communist Party Central Committee received a written invitation from the Indian Communist Party to send a Soviet Communist delegation to their Sixth Congress, which will be held from 6-17 April this year [1961].  We assumed that other fraternal parties would receive a similar invitation.  The Party Central Committee has already accepted the invitation, and has organized a Soviet Communist Party delegation, to be led by Comrade [Mikhail] Suslov.

Premier Zhou [Enlai]: Thank you for giving notice. We already know about the matter

Chervonenko: Has it already been confirmed who will participate from China?

Premier Zhou: We haven’t yet discussed this question.  After it is confirmed, we will inform you.
