四野所有朝鲜部队和朝鲜干部同意派回朝鲜工作。中共中央已与鲜共(2〕中央接洽好, 他们即派参谋政治人员三人来中国把部队改编好, 于四月间更换夏衣后开回朝鲜,并选一千多人先回朝鲜学习机械化兵种。








Lin [Biao], Deng [Zihui], Tan [Zhen], Xiao [Ke], Zhao [Erlu]:


All the ethnic Korean soldiers and officers of the Fourth Field Army agree to the task of being sent back to Korea. The CCP Central Committee has already arranged for the Xiangong [Korean Workers' Party] Central Committee to dispatch three political staff officers to come to China and reorganize troops, to start sending troops back to Korea in April--after the change to summer uniforms-- and to choose over a thousand soldiers to be sent back to Korea first to study military mechanization.
