ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Chinese-Soviet relationship. The conference between the Chinese and Soviet Communist spokesmen, held at Moscow, Soviet Union in July, was overshadowed, at least for the outside world, by the dramatic publication of the exchange of letters between the two Central committees. The breakup of the conference was hardly softened by halfhearted assertions of a mutual intention to continue the discussions. The exchanges confirm something that has beep widely suspected, but not adequately documented--that resentment of each other's domestic policies has played a major part in the process of mutual estrangement. The partial breakdown in Sino-Soviet economic cooperation has also been clarified. The Chinese statement confirms that it was, Moscow that took the initiative, in August 1960, of withdrawing its industrial and other experts. On the other hand, the Soviet statement assigns to Peking the initiative of cutting the volume of its trade with the Soviet Union by 67 percent and reducing the delivery of industrial plants by 40 times between 1960 and 1963. What is not spelled out in the exchanges is the degree to which the Soviet leaders were appalled by the "leap forward" of 1958. They clearly foresaw the serious disruption that it would and did inflict on the Chinese economy.
