ITEM 2 Mr. SHIGA. Welcomes His Comrades from YENH[illegible]- Yomiuri Hochi - 21 December-1945. Translator: R. Ochiai.
Full Translation:
NOSAKA, Sanni (OKANO, Susumu) and his colleagues, who in co-operation with the Chinese Communists in YENAN, kept urging JAPAN to stop the war, arrived at SEOUL on 18 December and very soon will return to JAPAN. Hearing this news, Mr. KUROKI, head of the Japanese Communist Party, delivered a welcome address as follows:
"We, the Japanese Comnunists, have been much interested in their homecoming, since they fought against every kind of trouble, including the Japanese imperialistic invasion of CHINA, for a long time. They struggled and achieved a splendid victory, and organized the Japanese people's Emancipation League, (NIPPONJIN KAIHO REMMEI). How, I hear they have arrived at SEOUL. I hope they will return as soon as possible."
In the name of the Central Comnittee, the Party ordered all the members to welcome the returnees and to work with them. SHIGA, Yoshio absolutely denied the rumor that there is some difference between the Communists in TOKYO and those in YENAN, saying, "since we and NUSAKA have been friends since the time of the Trade Union Party (SANRO TO), there cannot be a difference of opinion. If there is really such a rumor, it must have been started by themischief maker who wants to split our party. Some opportunistic fascists may have some connection with this rumor, but when NOSAKA returns, we can actively carry on our campaign to ether."
