The article discusses the Moscow conference that highlights a process of transformation of the Soviet bloc. The change became more rapid after the death of Communist leader Joseph Stalin. The main factor prompting change was the accumulated tension of popular national reaction against the Soviet domination. The Republic of China also urged that the Soviet Union should work with its western counterpart to evade the differences. The existence of the Sino-Soviet dialogue had forced the Soviet leaders to think on the subject of nuclear weapons. The dialogue helped to the disarmament proposal put by the international communities. The Moscow conference thus had the important effect in articulating a common line for these countries, and of narrowing somewhat the cleavage between the Soviets and the Chinese. The changes that had taken place within the Communist world have important policy implications for the West. As a result of the Moscow conference relations between the Soviet Union and the Communist states varied greatly.
