RE : Games of the XXIVth Olympiad

Dear Mr. Kim,

Thank you very much for your letter of 30th September 1985 which arrived only on the 4th November 1985.

Now that the joint meeting of the two Koreas is over, I would like to remind you of the forthcoming one, next January 1986, which is of great importance to the Olympic Movement.

I hope that our combined efforts will be entirely successful and that friendly ties will consolidate the spirit of understanding and goodwill throughout the world.

Yours sincerely,

Juan Antonio Samaranch

bcc. Mr. Raymond GAFNER

Note from IOC President Samaranch to North Korea's Olympic Committee regarding an upcoming meeting.
