Moscow-Peking Relations Continue to Deteriorate— An American-Chinese Rapprochement Feared Most by the Russians By LEON DENNEN UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (NEA) — Andrei Gromyko, Russia's taciturn foreign minister, was a bit more conciliatory when he met with President Nixon (he even smiled once) and White House officials were quick to see it as a sign of "improving relations" between the United States and Russia. Despite the Kremlin's repeated breaches of faith, Nixon still believes that only an understanding with Russia can lessen tensions and insure future world peace. He wants "negotiation instead of confrontation." It was obviously to convince the Russians of his good will that the President, in his address to the United Nations, did not mention Moscow's violation of the cease-fire in the Middle East or Soviet naval activity in Cuba. More importantly, he ignored Red China, Russia's antagonist in Asia and ideological rival in the Communist world. The United States, in fact, is the last major power to oppose Red China's membership in the United Nations. And yet a realistic American foreign policy can no longer afford to ignore the Chinese. After more than a decade of isolation they now seek diplomatic contact with the West. Moreover, Moscow's escalating quarrel with Peking is the only key to Russia's ever-shifting foreign policy. "The Kremlin's slightly more conciliatory line is largely due to fear of China and apprehension lest the United States and Peking come to some terms, leaving Moscow out in the cold," said an East European diplomat who knows the Russians. This, in his view, explains Gromyko's forced smile. There is indeed some evidence that relations between Moscow and Peking continue to deteriorate. According to reports reaching Communist East Europe, the lull in military hostilities on the Chinese-Soviet border is deceptive. Although Russian and Chinese representatives continue to negotiate in Peking, the Red giants remain in a state of war-readiness. They continue to prepare their people psychologically for a possible conflict. Chances of a settlement appear remote.
