To the HSWP Central Committee Foreign Division:

On August 26, the deputy head of the local foreign division summoned me. Comrade Hyeon Jun-–k requested in the name of the KWP Central Committee to forward the following to the HSWP Central Committee:

On the occasion of the KWP’s 6th Congress and the party anniversary celebrations following it on October 10, they are inviting the HSWP’s delegation along with the delegations of sister parties. They are inviting ––– highly ranked delegates, not counting the escorts whose number can be specified by the HSWP. They are sending the official invitation through their ambassador in Budapest.

They will decide the day of the invitation later, but they are expecting the arrival of the delegations around October –––. They are planning –-day program for the delegations including the celebrations.

The delegations will not hold greeting speeches on the congress, but celebratory meetings are scheduled for the countryside programs, where the delegates of the sister parties can hold their greeting speeches.

The main events of the anniversary: celebratory procession, reception, various show programs, mass gymnastics presentations.

Comrade Hyeon emphasized: It would be a great honor if the HSWP was to be represented by a high-ranking delegation.
