(Translation)
  I have recieved your letter. We have been making preparations with immense joy for the friendly visit of your Excellency to our country as President of the Republic of Ghana, which could not be realized to our regret.
  We are especially enraged at the reationary coup d'état which took place in Ghana at the instigation of the imperialists while your Excellency was visiting a number of countries.
  These imperialists engineer similar plots and perpetrate subversive activities against progressive countries everywhere. We resolutely condemn the machinations of the imperialists against the just cause of the peoples for national liberation, independence independence and progress.
  We express our unreserved support to your Excellency's determination to fight for the freedom of Ghana on your return to Ghana.
