In sum, the heart of the Sino-Soviet conflict remains Russia wants a weak, relatively isolated China, while China, in turn, is, determined to attain security in the short run through ties to the West and Japan, and in the long run by achieving the status of a major -- if not dominant -- power in Asia.
