   On June 6, Premier Chou En-lai addressed separate messages to Gamal Abdel Nasser, President of the United Arab Republic, Noureddin Atassi, Head of State of the Syrian Arab Republic, and Ahmad Shukairy, President of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Following are the text of the messages. — Ed.

Message to Gamal Abdel Nasser

   On June 5, 1967, instigated and supported by U.S. imperialism, Israel launched cowardly sudden attacks on Cairo, capital of the U.A.R., the Suez Canal zone, the Gaza Strip and other places, thus precipitating a war of aggression against all the Arab states and people. Fearing no brute force and filled with haired against their common enemy, the people of the U.A.R. and the entire Arab people who have an anti-imperialist tradition have greatly deflated the truculent arrogance of the aggressors and have won the sympathy and praise of all the anti-imperialist revolutionary people of Asia, Africa and the whole world.
   The current aggression by Israel has been long premeditated and was launched after Israel had been assured of political and military support from U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. Facts have once again demonstrated that U.S. imperialism is the arch criminal supporting Israel in its aggression against the Arab slates and is the most ferocious enemy of the Arab people. The Chinese people and Government fully agree with the correct conclusion drawn by Your Excellency Mr. President on May 2 that U.S. imperialism is "the headquarters of the counter-revolution in the world."
   At present, the situation of the struggle against imperialism in the world is excellent. U.S. imperialism is besieged ring upon ring by the people of the world. By their war adventures U.S. imperialism and its tool Israel can only arouse the Arab people to even more resolute resistance and hasten their own doom. Britain, France and Israel did not come to any good end in their aggression against Egypt in 1956. and today, in instigating and supporting Israel in its aggression against the Arab states U.S. imperialism will definitely come to no good end either.
   Chairman Mao Tse-tung, the great leader of the Chinese people, has said, "The just struggles of the peoples of various countries in the world support each other." The Chinese Government and people have always highly appraised the Arab people's struggle against imperialism and regarded their struggle as our own struggle and their victories as our own victories. Now I wish to reiterate to Your Excellency that in the struggle to repel the aggression by U.S. imperialism and its tool Israel, the Chinese Government and people stand firmly by the U.A.R. people and the entire Arab people and will for ever remain the staunch and reliable comrades-in-arms of the Arab people.
   Finally, allow me, on behalf of Chairman Mao Tse-tung and Vice-Chairman Lin Piao as well as in my own name, to extend to Your Excellency our sincere regards and greetings.


Message to Noureddin Atassi

   On June 5, instigated and supported by U.S. imperialism, Israel brazenly launched military aggression against your country. This is a new and grave war provocation against the people of Syria as well as the entire Arab people.
   In the face of imperialist aggression, the Government and people of the Syrian Arab Republic have waged a til-for-tat struggle and are hitting back at the aggressors with resolute and powerful blows. Your just action has demonstrated the strong will of the Syrian people and the entire Arab people to oppose aggression by U.S. imperialism and Israel and has won the sympathy and praise of all the anti-imperialist revolutionary people of Asia, Africa and the rest of the world. The Chinese Government and the 700 million Chinese people will, as in the past, stand firmly by the people of Syria and the other Arab states and give- full support to your just struggle against aggression.
   Facts have proved once again that U.S. imperialism is the No. 1 enemy of the people of Syria and the other Arab stales and is the source of all the sufferings of the Arab people. This war of aggression launched by U.S. imperialism and its tool Israel in no way indicates their strength; on the contrary, it shows that they are at the end of their tether and are putting up a last-ditch struggle. Chairman Mao Tse-tung, the great leader of the Chinese people, pointed out long ago: "All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries arc terrifying, hut in reality they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who arc really powerful." 1 am deeply convinced that with the sympathy and support of the people of the world, the heroic people of Syria and the other Arab states, who have a glorious anti-imperialist tradition, will certainly win final victory in their struggle against aggression, so long as they strengthen their unity and persevere in struggle.
   Finally, allow me, on behalf of Chairman Mao Tse-tung and Vice-Chairman Lin Piao as well as in my own name, to extend to Your Excellency our sincere regards and greetings.

Message to Ahmad Shukairy

   Instigated and supported by the U.S. and British imperialists, Israel has brazenly launched a massive armed attack on the Arab states and peoples.
   United as one, the Arab people are waging a just war against aggression. The Arab people of Palestine and the Palestine Liberation Army have taken up their fighting posts and, together with the entire Arab armed forces and people, they are giving play to the spirit of courage in battle and fearing no sacrifice and are dealing head-on blows at the aggressors.
   Israel is a product of the U.S. and British imperialist policy of aggression. Nineteen years ago, Israel, supported by the U.S. and British imperialists, forcibly occupied the homeland of the Arab people of Palestine and compelled about a million Palestinians to become homeless refugees.
   Today, the oppressed Arab people and the disaster-ridden Palestinians have stood up. Wherever there is oppression, there is resistance; wherever there is aggression, there is struggle against aggression. I believe that having taken up arms, the revolutionary Arab people of Palestine and the entire Arab people will not lay down their arms and, like the heroic Vietnamese people, will fight on unflinchingly, resolutely and stubbornly until final victory.
   At present, the situation of the anti-imperialist revolutionary struggle throughout the world is excellent. U.S. imperialism is heavily besieged by the Vietnamese people, the Arab people and the revolutionary people of the whole world. Your Excellency has on many occasions stated that Palestine can be liberated only by armed struggle. I very much admire this clear-cut view held by Your Excellency. Today, the just war of the Arab states and peoples against aggression by U.S. imperialism, British imperialism and Israel is a fine beginning of the struggle to liberate Palestine.
   The Chinese people's great leader Chairman Mao Tse-tung has taught us: "The seizure of power by armed force, the settlement of the issue by war, is the central task and the highest form of revolution." The practice of revolutionary struggle of the Arab people of Palestine will again prove this indisputable truth.
   The Chinese people will for ever remain comrades-in-arms of the Palestinian people and other Arab peoples in the struggle against imperialism. The Chinese Government and people will, as always, stand on your side and resolutely support you in carrying through to the end the just struggle against U.S. imperialism, British imperialism and their running dog Israel.

Please accept my regards and greetings.
