We are extremely happy to reprint the following letter from Pol Pot, Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Kampuchea.
* * *
We are especially pleased to have received the congratulatory message of the Canadian Communist League (Marxist-Leninist) on the occasion of the 17th anniversary of the founding of our Communist Party of Kampuchea and of the solemn proclamation of its official existence both at home and abroad. Your message showed great respect for our Communist Party of Kampuchea and our Kampuchean people, who faithfully adhere to the line of independence, sovereignty and self-reliance. Moreover it attests to the revolutionary friendship of the Canadian Communist League (Marxist-Leninist), and of the Canadian working class and people, towards the Communist Party of Kampuchea and the Kampuchean people. This greatly encourages us. In the name of the Communist Party of Kampuchea and the Kampuchean people, we express our deepest thanks.
On this occasion we would like to wish you well and great success in fulfilling your revolutionary tasks. We wish the Canadian working class and people greater victories in their revolutionary struggle.
Please accept, Comrades, our warm revolutionary greetings,
Phnom Penh, October 28, 1977
For the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Kampuchea
