The Secretary of State to the United States Delegation 1

secret

Tosec 341. For Under Secretary from Secretary. Secto 363 and 365.2 I concur in course of action outlined in paragraph three Secto 365 and congratulate you on excellent job in steering Korean phase on right road despite numerous obstacles.

I hope that prior to termination of Korean phase Communists can be led to full rejection of Pyun fourteen point proposal and especially to clear unwillingness to accept any UN role in Korean settlement. Once foregoing aim is accomplished I would favor earliest termination Korean talks.
