Abstract:

This memorandum considers the relationship between the USSR and Vietnam. The author suggests that the bands of necessity which have held Vietnam to the USSR eventually will be loosened and the Vietnamese will seek to distance themselves from Moscow. He foresees no possibility that Vietnam will ever become a satellite of the USSR, in the manner of East Europe. He concludes that there appears to be a great paradoxical law at work in associating oneself with the Vietnamese any successful relationship is an eventual catastrophe. Moscow may succeed where others have failed but more likely it too will become a victim of Vietnam. Author
