Not So Explosive Peking-Moscow Rift Worst Ever, U.S. Expert Believes Galesburg Reaister-Maii, GalesbufQ, 111, Thufsdoyjune 7, fiy JOHN F, BARTON WASHINGTON (UPI) - The flft Mwm Moscow and Mng is quieter but deeper than ever, the State Department's ranking pjqpert on Asian affairs believes. Washington Window "But it is less explosive," adds Marshal Green, former Assistant Secretary of State tor East Asian and Pacific Affairs. Green, the top State Depart' ment Asian expert lor four years, made his observations to UPI just before leaving recently to become U.S. AnKbagsador to Australia. Green noted tfhat the Chinese land the Soviets no longer are trying to resolve their border and ideological disputes with military force. There are no more bloody border clashes such as those that stunned the world at the beginning of this decade. Chinese officials in Peking recently told American news media the situation was so tense then that only American diplomatic efforts prevented a Soviet nuclear strike against China. Tension Tightens The Soviet Embassy here promptly labeled the Chinese statement as totally false. "Such a threat did not and does not exist," the Embassy said. "The spreading of iHhe above provocative assertions contradicts the facts and has nothing to do with the interests cif international detente and of strengthening peace," the Embassy added. Green said that despite the quiet on the Sino-Soviet border, tension between Moscow and Peking has deepened sig nificantiy. So far all efforts to resolve bowler and other disputes have been fruitless, China is edgy about the forthcoming official visit of Soviet Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev to the United States^ Russia 13 uneasy about the detente between Washington and Peking, particularly the unusually cordial treatment being accorded Ambassador Huang Chen by the White House. No Easy Solution Green said that strong Soviet support, for Bangladesh and continuing tensions between Pakistan, befriended by Peking, and India, backed by Moscow, have deepened suspicion between China and Russia. Green foresaw no easy solution to the Sino-Soviet dispute in the foreseeable future. Reviewing events in Asia during the past four years Green said the U.S. could not afford to abandon Southeast Asia now that the Vietnam War was ended. "We want to see the war concluded for all the people of the area," he said. "We don't just want to call for a basin of water and wash our hands of it." Cambodia remains the unresolved problem in Indochina, Michigan Family Visits at Gilson GILSON — Mr. and Mrs. Mike Cecil and family, Dehnont, Mich., visited his parents here recently and attended Knoxviile High School's graduation June 1. Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Eckman visited relatives June 3 in Peoria. he said. Any failure to resolve the problems there could threaten the entire Vietnam peace agreement. Balkans of Asia Green said North Vietnam was still determined to pursue its goal of dominating the Indochina area. But "I believe that Hanoi will seek to achieve' its goal by political! measures rather than military measures," He added that "I think the government of South Vietnam has a very good chance of surviving." Green predicted that Southeast Asia would remain a world trouble spot in the near future. "This is sort of the Balkans of Asia. The countries concerned there have been up against great odds." "We have learned a great deal from our Vietnam experience," Green said. "It has been a very sobering experience." Green said the three lessons the U.S. learned in Vietnam are: —"That we should base our policies on realistic and practi call positions, not legalities; —"We should get away from ideological conflict; —"We have come to see the merits in dialogue with every one, including adversaries."
