ADDRESS AT BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION MEETING HELD FOR STALIN

Dear comrades and friends,

I am genuinely pleased to have the chance to join this distinguished gathering in celebration of the 70th birthday of Comrade Stalin.

Comrade Stalin is a teacher and friend of the people of the world as well as a teacher and friend of the Chinese people. He has further developed the revolutionary theory of marxism-leninism and has made extremely outstanding and extensive contributions to the cause of the international communist movement. In the arduous struggle to resist their oppressors, the Chinese people have become deeply appreciative of the importance of Comrade Stalin‘s friendship.

At this distinguished gathering, on behalf of the Chinese people and the Communist Party of China, I congratulate Comrade Stalin on his 70th birthday and wish him health and longevity. We wish well-being, strength, and prosperity to our great friend, the Soviet Union under the leadership of Comrade Stalin. We hail the great unprecedented solidarity of the working class in the world under the leadership of Comrade Stalin.

LONG LIVE THE GREAT STALIN, LEADER OF THE INTERNATIONAL WORKING CLASS AND OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST MOVEMENT!

LONG LIVE THE SOVIET UNION, THE STRONHOLD OF WORLD PEACE AND DEMOCRACY!
