Товарищу Мао Цзэдуну,


Вашу телеграмму от 21 февраля получили.


В ответ на преступные действия американских империалистов, начавших бактериологическую войну в Корее, необходимо, чтобы со стороны антиимпериалистического лагеря были предприняты серьезные контрмеры.


Согласны с намеченным Вами планом мероприятий как по линии Корейского и Китайского правительств, так и по линии Всемирного совета сторонников мира.


Со своей стороны советское правительство активно поддержит эти мероприятия.

To Comrade Mao Zedong


Your telegram of 21 February has been received.


In response to the criminal actions of the American imperialists, who have embarked on bacteriological warfare in Korea, it is essential for the anti-imperialist camp to take serious countermeasures.


We agree with the plan of measures you have proposed for both the [North] Korean and the Chinese governments, as well as for the World Council for the Supporters of Peace.


The Soviet Government, for its part, will actively support these measures.


With greetings,



Stalin promises support with investigating Amercan bacteriological warfare in North Korea
