The Ambassador in China (Hurley) to the Secretary of State

1062. Consul Ward reports that Chairman Wu Chung-hsin returned to Tihwa June 23 and that special delegate Liu Tse-yung (ReEmbstel 1050, June 26, 8 a.m., to Dept; repeated to Moscow) in answer to urgent summons from T. V. Soong (sent to Dept; repeated to Moscow) left Tihwa June 24 for Chungking.

I have discussed the Sinkiang situation with Soong who informed me that in his opinion it was due to Chinese factional strife. He discredited rumors that the difficulties were being promoted by the Soviet Government.
