To the Chairman of the Central People's Government of the Chinese People's Republic, Comrade Mao Tse Tung.
Please accept, Comrade Chairman, my thanks for the expression of your feelings on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the victory over Japanese imperialism by the Soviet people and the Soviet Army.
In this historic victory, the Chinese people and their People's Liberation Army played a great role by their heroism and sacrifices in the smashing of Japanese aggression.
The great friendship between the Soviet Union and the Chinese People's Republic is a sure guarantee against the danger of a new aggression, a mighty bulwark of peace in the far East and in the whole world.
Please accept, Comrade Chairman, on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the liberation of the Chinese people from the yoke of Japanese imperialism, the good wishes of the Soviet Union.
Long live the unbreakable friendship between the Chinese People's Republic and the Soviet Union!
Long live the People's Liberation Army of the Chinese People's Republic!
Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the U.S.S.R.
