Abstract:

This research memorandum is part of RANDs continuing analysis of Chinese foreign policy as it relates to military strategy and basic American interests. It analyzes the manner in which the Communist Chinese government made use of appeals to Asian neutralism in the period since November, 1957. The manipulation of neutralism is treated as an important aspect of the basic Sino-Soviet policy problem of the time, that of prudent and effective use of a position of strength. Besides aiming at weakening the United States military position in Asia, the Chinese during 1960 formulated the goal of overthrowing imperialism on a world-wide scale. The study concludes with a postscript on the Moscow Declarations of December 5, 1960, and their possible effect on future Chinese Communist foreign policy. Author
