Discussion between Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai and Pham Van Dong
MAO ZEDONG, ZHOU ENLAI AND PHAM VAN DONG
Beijing, 10 April 1967
Zhou Enlai: Most of the Chinese Red Guards, who crossed the border to Vietnam, are good. They came to Vietnam because they wanted to fight the Americans. But they did not respect the rules of our two countries, thus causing some complications. We apologize to you for this.
Mao Zedong: Some Red Guards do not know what a national border means. Among the people who came to Vietnam, most of them [are] from Jiangxi, some from Yunnan. It is not necessary for you to take care of them. Just explain to them and then hand them over to us.
Zhou Enlai and Mao Zedong address the issue of problematic Chinese Red Guard.
