Posted on Updated on

(25 September 1937, from Luo Fu and Mao Zedong to Zhou Enlai, Li Boqu, etc.)

Comrades Zhou, Lin and Bogu, Jianying, Hannian, Yunmian, Juezai (let Lin tell him), as well as Comrades Zhu, Peng, Ren, Lin, Nie, He, Guan, Liu and Zhang:

A: Please base your conversations around the following points:

I, We announce that our talks to declare a United War (Front) with Mr Chiang are successful. The necessary basis for both parties to united and save the country has been laid.

II, This announcement will not only become a policy of unity between both parties, it will also become a basic policy for the great unity of the citizens in the entire country. The rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the overthrow of Japanese imperialism will provide a basis for unity between both parties and unity nationwide in the future.

III, In the discussions, Chiang put forward the profound significance of uniting and saving the country, he has determined the lawful position of the Communist Party nationwide, and made a commitment to “start completely anew with the citizens of the entire country”. But he still displayed a sharp spirit of egotism, he lacks self-criticism, which is to be regretted. The question for the future will be the thorough realization of the Three Principles of the People and the Ten Points Plan put forward by the Communist Party that is conform with the Three Principles of the People.

IV, The declaration was drafted on 4 March, submitted on 15 May and published on 22 September.

Luo Fu, Zedong

25 September.

 

关于国共两党抗日民族统一战线建成后宣传内容的指示
(一九三七年九月二十五日洛甫、毛泽东致周恩来、林伯渠等)
周、林并告博古、剑英、汉年、胡服、云逸、觉哉(由林转)及朱、彭、任、林、聂、贺、关、刘、张诸同志:

甲、你们谈话请根据下列诸点:

一、我们宣言及蒋氏谈话宣布了统一战争〔线〕的成功。建立了两党团结救国的必要基础。

二、这个宣言不但将成为两党团结的方针,而且将成为全国国民大团结的根本方计。中华民族之复兴,日本帝国主义之打倒,将于今后的两党团结与全国团结得到基础。

三、蒋谈话指出了团结救国的深切意义,确定了共产党在全国的合法地位,发出了“与全国国民澈底更始”的诺言。但还表现着自大主义箭神,缺乏自我批评,未免遗憾。今后问题是澈底实现三民主义及与三民主义相符合的中共提出的十大纲领。

四、宣言是三月四日起草的,五月十五交付的,九月二十二日发表的。

洛甫、泽东

九月二十五日
