CIPHER TELEGRAM

Subject: The KWP’s 6th Congress (Mongolian evaluation)

The Mongolian ambassador informed me about the following:

The MPRP (Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party) discussed the report of the Mongolian party delegation attending the KWP’s 6th Congress, and concluded that the cult of personality around Kim Il Sung and his son is intensifying, and this detrimental to the DPRK. The Korean nationalist line is growing stronger. They are attempting to replace Marxism-Leninism by the “juche” ideology. The latter one is a revisionist tendency.

The MPRP Politburo will inform the leaders of the party and the government about the KWP’s mistaken way of governing, and brief the party members accordingly.

Nonetheless, according to the decision of the Politburo, they will be making efforts not to let the Korean-Mongolian interparty and interstate relations weaken.

The Mongolian comrades deem it desirable to improve the coordination with friendly countries in the Korean subject.
