To the Chairman [Mao Zedong] and Comrades Liu [Shaoqi], Zhu [De], Peng [Dehuai], [Li] Fuchun, and Su Yu:[1]

The telegram I sent is attached.[2] Please ask the Chairmen to review it and provide instructions. The telegram mentions the foodstuffs industry because the Soviet government proposed cooperation on cannery issues. We need to request this time that the Soviets design a cannery in South China.

Humbly submitted,

Zhou Enlai
