Fizz's answer to Has post-revolutionary China ever backed down in international (plus SARs, TAR and cross-straits) affairs? quotes Wikipedia's Sino-Soviet border conflict; Eastern border: Heilongjiang (1969):

Speaking at a banquet held at the Romanian embassy in Beijing on 23 August 1968, Zhou Enlai denounced the Soviet Union for "fascist politics, great power chauvinism, national egoism and social imperialism". He went on to compare the invasion of Czechoslovakia to the Americans in the Vietnam War and more pointedly to the policies of Adolf Hitler towards Czechoslovakia in 1938 to 1939. Zhou ended his speech with a barely veiled-call for the people of Czechoslovakia to wage guerrilla war against the Red Army.

While the answer suggests a comparison to Russian "activities" in Ukraine might be interesting, I'm more interested personally how these might play for a Taiwanese audience in 2022.

But that aside for now at least, I'd like to find out what the full content of the speech was. To that end I'd like to ask:

Question: What exactly did Zhou Enlai say about the Czech-Soviet situation in a speech at the Romanian embassy in Beijing on 23 August 1968? Is an English translation available?
