To the Chairman of the Central People's Government of the Chinese People's Republic, Comrade Mao Tse Tung.
I thank you, Comrade Chairman, for the high estimation of the role which the Soviet Union and its fighting power played in the smashing of Japanese aggression.
The Chinese people, and their liberation army have played a great role, despite the machinations of the Kuomintang, in the liquidation of Japanese imperialism. The struggle of the Chinese people and their liberation army has helped the smashing of the Japanese aggression profoundly.
It cannot be doubted that the unbreakable friendship of the Soviet Union and the Chinese People's Republic serves and will serve to guarantee peace in the far East against all and every aggressor and arsonist of war.
Please accept, Comrade Chairman, the good wishes of the Soviet Union and its fighting forces on the sixth anniversary of the liberation of East Asia from the yoke of Japanese imperialism.
Long live the great friendship of the Chinese People's Republic and the Soviet Union!
Long live the Chinese People's Liberation Army!
Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the U.S.S.R,
