Regarding the Matter of Sending Experts in Woodcarving and Ivory


[To the] [Chinese] Embassy in Mali:


[According to your] cable [sent on] 20 October [1964], the two experts in woodcarving and ivory [have] already been selected. We consider a work period of one-and-a-half to two years to be appropriate. During [their] time in Mali, your Embassy [will be responsible] for [their] strict oversight. The Malian side will be responsible for assorted living expenses and [shall] provide room and board, medical care, office equipment, [and] travel equipment. Salary and round trip travel expenses will be borne by us. Please have your Embassy refer to our [country's] signed agreement with Mali [regarding] experts' [in-country] treatment and compensation.


Looking forward to your reply.
