SINO-SOVIET RELATIONS: SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS
|1.||In security terms the Soviet interest in diverting Free World military resources from the Soviet Union and the primary locus of world power in the West is accomplished; and Chinese military dependence on the Soviet Union is a powerful instrument for maintaining Moscow's bargaining position over Peking. The Chinese Communists, on the other hand, are permitted by the military alliance to press harder their expansionist ambitions in Asia; to acquire modern military equipment and the skills to employ it; and to move in the direction of greater long-run freedom of action.|
