    24 August 1945. Speaking at a victory celebration in Ulaanbaatar, the MPR prime minister Choibalsan hails the liberation of Mongol lands from the Japanese and the freedom and independence of their people. The same day, Chiang Kai-shek announces China’s agreement to recognize the independence of Outer Mongolia if its people vote for this. Two days later, Unen Sonin publishes Choibalsan’s speech, highlighting his words on the unification of all Mongols. It will be the last time the party organ writes directly on Mongol unification.
