Letter, UN Chef de Cabinet Narasimhan to UNCURK Principal Secretary Nekunam, Concerning Support to UNCURK






23 February 1967


Dear Ali,


I hope that by the time this letter reaches you you will have returned to Seoul after a successful session of the Commission in Tokyo.


I returned from my trip to the Far East on 19 February and I have since seen Mr. Syrovy’s letter of 27 January, your letter of 10 February and your further report of 17 January. I am glad to have the news regarding the continuation of logistical support for UNCURK. I hope that the difficulties in regard to the Alternate Representatives can be ironed out soon.


I also hope that during your visit to Tokyo you will have a chance to meet with Dr. Luke Lee, about whom I wrote to you in the course of my travels.


Regarding your confidential letter on the subject of Mamoharan, I shall send you, and him, a separate reply in due course.


With best wishes,


Yours sincerely,




C.V. Narasimhan

Chef de Cabinet


Mr. Ali Nekumam

Principal Secretary

United Nations Commission for the

Unification and Rehabilitation of Korea
