PRIORITY

In addition to Nº 825, 826 (incoming 32698) (handwritten: "see N 12236" and some illegible letters/initials)

The rally of the Manchurian fellow countrymen convened on 25 November by the "Association for the Revival of Manchuria" and the Chongqing community of Manchurians poured over into an open anti-Soviet meeting. Anti-Soviet leaflets were distributed among those who had gathered and shouts rang out that the USSR "had attacked China", and that the USSR "had violated the Soviet-Chinese treaty". The Communist press writes that the rally was a tool of a reactionary group of the CC, and CC members Wangwang [SIC] Xing[zh]ou and Wang Hanshen (a member of the presidium of the youth league of the Three People's Principles) had led the rally.

The text of wishes addressed to Chiang Kai-shek [Jiang Jieshi] was distributed among those present in the form of leaflets. In these leaflet "wishes" the current situation in Manchuria was openly likened to "a repetition of the events of 18 September 1931", and it was pointed out that the USSR had used the Soviet-Chinese treaty as a tool of aggression against China, and the like.

I considered it necessary in a meeting with Wang Shijie to direct his attention to the fact of the organization in the capital of a clearly anti-Soviet rally that cannot be reconciled with the existing friendly relations between the USSR and China, and to ask that proper measures be taken to avert such assemblies in the future.

Request instructions.
