MONDAY, JULY 27. 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Truce Means the Beginning Of Major Policy Problems U.S. Is Wary of Red China's Future Plans By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — Diplomats took over the battle for Korea today, and with the lifting of the pressures of open war a new set of problems and dangers arose to plague Allied and Communist governments alike. long- delay a demand for consul- Foremost among these on the Allied side Is the threat of eventual angry struggle between admissio nof Red China to the United Nations. As for the Communists, there is speculation already about the impact of the armistice on relations among Russia, Red China and North Korea—a situation about which Western governments know little but hope for much. it is too early to tell yet whether the uneasy truce that settled over Korea's shell-churned battlefronl means the beginning of a new and mure peaceful era in the worldwide conflict betwen the Communist and free nations. But officials here have no doubt that it poses mnny problems which were beyond action while the fighting . raged. R) !/• N. Assembly Is Arena The first arena of tht Qlplomatic struggle ovei these problems is due to be the United Nations General Assembly, at a special session In New York next month. The Assembly's primary task will be to set the F.tage for a political conference on Korea—and perhaps wider Par Eastern issues. That conference, under the truce terms, must convene by late October. In these sesions the major objective of the United States, and presumably of other friendly nations, wil be to seek the Korean unification which both sides failed to win in the war. The Western Allies conceive of this as unification under a non- Communipt government. That means they want the Reds to give up North Korea, and it raises the critical question: If the Beds are willing to consider this at all, what price wil they ask? Authorities here do not know the answer, but they have an idea that what the Reds may ask is a seat for Red China in the United N n t i o n s, displacing Nationalist China; an end to trade embargoes against Red China, and satisfaction of Red China's claims on Fcrmosa. No Optimism This prospect effectively kills off fill}, optimism in orilcial quarters about the chances of early unification of Korea. For while the British have semed to favor a I U N. seat for Red China once the Korean fighting ended, there is such overwhelming opposition to it in the U. S. Congress tha the Eisenhower administration appears to have no choice but to fight any deal along that line. The issue ot Formosa is an even more bitter one for the United Slates, which recognizes the Chinese Nationalist government established there and also considers th,it Formosa in hostile hand, •would he a threat to the American defense system in the western Pacific. The United States, Britain and France agreed early this month that they would maintain their policies of barring Red China from the U. N. and embargoing strategic materials to that country, pending further consultations. But since Britain recognizes Red China instead of the Nationalist government and since there have been pressures in Parliament for a Red China seat in the U. N., it seems unlikely that the British can sues, now that the truce is a fact, tstion on the U. N. and trade is- France Different France's position is different from that of Britain. It is dominated by the fact that French and native forces are battling in Indochina Comuriist armies that have Red Chinese support. The French are weary of that long and costly Georges of State war. Foreign Minister Bidault told Secretary Dules here two weeks ago that an armistice in Korea would intensify French public demand for peace In Indochina. Prance and the United States are now working on plans to step up the Indochina effort, with this country bearing a greater share of the burden But the French are deeply interested in what diplomats call an honorable end to the conflict, and. should peace spread from Korea into Southeast Asia, it could radically alter Prance's altitude toward Communist China. In the strictly limited Korean truce there is, of course, no hint whatever that peace will spread. The United states, Britain and Prance, in fact, have recognized two alternative dangers in the armistice. New Power One is that the Reds may build up new power in North Korea— especially forward all-fields — resume the war, hoping that the United States and the 15 other United Nations with forces there will not make, a second time, the powerful military effort with which they responded to the first aggression more than three years gao. •ainst this possibility the three Western Powers served notice that f the armistice is ivolated they will go to war again- The second danger foreseen vhen Dulles, Bidault and British Acting Foreign Minister Lord Sal- wus that the Red Chinese, having secured their flank in Korea, would divert their major forces to Indochina in a ruthless bid for control of Southeast Asia. The Heds were told this would be considered a violation of the spirit of the Korean truce. President Eisenhower and Secretary Dulles have said repeatedly that an end to the Korenn War .should be the first .step in bringing peace to- all Asia and relaxing cold war tensions throughout the world. If the masterminds in the I Kremlin really pull the strings on the Red. Chinese government at Peiping, and if the Kremlin wants to push iis poace offensive by diplomatic action, the Korean truce historic readjustments in. Communist-Western world relations. Differences? But no one this side of the Iron Cuitrtin knows the state of relations between Russia and Red China. Many informed officials tdoubt that Russia does pull the strings or that China's Red rulers accord the same esteem to Premier Georgi Malcnkov that they held for the late Joseph Stalin. If this is true, it could lead to trouble betwen Peiping and Moscow, for j Moscow is more accustomed to j dictate to satellite governments than to treat them as equals. The problems and relationships which wil gc into the Korean pol'tical conference are so plex that the negotiations bad faith and that they are using the conference as a cover to infiltrate South Korea or otherwise make trouble for it. The shooting has ended in the Korean War. but the truce has an uneasy futur* 1 and real peace in a unified country may still be a long way off. Rhee Has Observer At Truce coin- could even sburg met here two weeks ago that the Rens easily last for months—or fcr years if the lengthy truce talks are any guide. But South Korean President Synpnan Rhee, who agreed with the utmost reluctance not to obstruct the truce, has stated flatly that he want? no surii drawnout talk an dthat if necessary he may resume the war. Threats Rhee has bet for himself a 90- day limit on the conference. If it has not agreed on Korean unification in that time, he has threatened to resume fighting and he has demanded that the United States go to war again with him. The United States has rejected this demand and has refused to promise Rhee material and moral s-upport if he violates the truce. However, as a compromise measure the United States promised tilat under certain conditions it will walk out of the truce after 9D days and consult with him on what to do next. The conditions are that the United States should deckle are negotiating in Taylor Warns Of Truce AT THE FRONT IN KOREA W)— Gen. Mnxifell D. Taylor told his troops today the Korean cease-fire is only an armistice and not a peace.
