Mao is now head of the Communist regime in China. .At the moment he is in Moscow. One of the four reasons for Nakanishi's expulsion was given in this manner by a party spokesman : "On the basis of recent foreign dispatches (presumably those referring to the Cominform attack) "Nakanishi has started an open attack on the party and tried to disrupt the party."
