CIPHER TELEGRAM

To the HWSP (Hungarian Socialist Workers’ Party) Central Committee Foreign Division.

Subject: KWP’s 6th Congress

I held a farewell dinner to our party vacationers on September 1. The main guest from the Korean side, as commissioned head of department, was Comrade Lee Won-seon.

Regarding my questions about the congress, he said that they are inviting more than a hundred delegations. Not only communist party delegations will be present, but also delegations from progressive parties, mostly from developing countries, which are in liaison with the KWP.

They did not invite the Pol Pot-ist party delegation!

Remark:

They separated the party delegations of the socialist countries into three categories according to their number of members:

They invited a 4-5 member delegation from the Soviet Union, China, Yugoslavia, and Romania; a 2-3 member delegation from Mongolia, and Vietnam; and a generally 3-4 member delegation from the rest of the countries, including us as well.

The travel expenses of the developing countries are covered by the KWP.
