591. Eyes only for Austin and Gross. ReDeptel 590.1 Dept believes it tactically important that terms cease-fire set forth reftel not be identified by Entezam comite in their conversations with Chi Commies as US terms. Hence, strict secrecy shld be preserved as to fact that USDel has handed these terms to Entezam comite. Dept recognizes that Entezam comite will handle this problem in accordance with its own views but USUN shld stress with them tactical desirability of adopting terms set forth reftel as its own rather than those of US.
