Will you let me have a copy of your reply to Chicherin? I think he is right.
 Written under the text of G. V. Chicherin’s letter to J. V. Stalin of November 19, 1921, in which Chicherin said that the Soviet state should not confine itself to giving political support to the national liberation movement in the East, but should help the young national states to develop their economy and train their personnel. Pointing to the positive results of this policy in respect of Afghanistan, Mongolia and Persia, Chicherin suggested the same policy in respect of Turkey.
