The Ambassador in China (Gauss) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 16—11:31 a.m.]
1966. For Department only. We are informed by authoritative and reliable source that, just before Adler left for Cairo to meet White, Kung said to him that he could tell White that the Chinese Government offered the U. S. Government two alternative proposals in regard the Stabilization Agreement:
- The Agreement could be revised along lines suggested by the Chinese Government or
- the Board could be liquidated pending some suitable opportunity in the future to revive the Agreement.
