Double Tenth Agreement
The second plenary session of the CEC97, in February, openly called for the reversal of the ceasefire order, the decisions of the political consultation conference and the agreement to reorganize the army, while US military aid to Chiang Kai-shek far exceeded that of the Hurley period.98 The double tenth agreement, officially known as the summary of talks between representatives of the Kuomintang and the Chinese Communist Party, was an agreement between the Kuomintang (KMT) and the Chinese Communist Party (CPC) concluded on October 10, 1945 (the double tenth day of the Republic of China) after 43 days of negotiations.   CCP Chairman Mao Zedong and U.S. Ambassador to China Patrick J. Hurley went together to Chungking on August 27, 1945 to begin negotiations. The result was that the CCP recognized the KMT as a legitimate government, while the KMT recognized the CPC as a legitimate opposition party. The Communist Party is the feast that Chiang Kai-shek and Marshall should appreciate their good faith and character. There can be no excuse to overturn the sacred agreements they themselves have signed. If they show only a modicum of sincerity, the Communist Party will certainly continue to cooperate with them to the end in order to truly achieve peace and really begin democracy. The Communist Party believes that justice will eventually triumph.
Whatever the tribulations and winding paths to be travelled, the efforts of the Chinese people to win peace and democracy will finally restore the full validity of the ceasefire order and the decisions of the political consultation conference. . . .
