MOSCOW, VKP(b) CC, to Cde. MOLOTOV FOR THE FOUR

1. As is evident from the materials the Czechoslovaks do not want to create a mixed company for radium and other metals of interest. The motives are known. I consider it advisable to abandon the principle of a mixed company and agree to [a/the] proposal of the Czechs which ensures our interests on this question in fact.

2. In his last message Truman proposes a simultaneous withdrawal of American and Soviet troops from Czechoslovakia, timing this matter to 1 December of this year. I think that it is necessary to agree with Truman’s proposal. If the four also agree with this, then I can write a corresponding reply to Truman on condition that the Czechoslovak government has no objections to this.
