A file of correspondence, reports, and press extracts on Soviet foreign policy. The file reports the French government's analysis of the decision of the Soviet leader, Nikita Khrushchev, to bring an early end to a great power conference in Paris. The French report noted "internal" pressure on Khrushchev to take a harder line with the United States, and "external" provocations including American espionage flights over Soviet territory, and considered that a period of increased tensions, especially in Berlin, was likely. The file also discusses growing ideological differences between the Soviet Union and China; the Chinese belief that "peaceful coexistence" was impossible as long as imperialism existed; and Soviet press attacks on China's "leftist dogmatism", which pointed out that revolution was possible without war.
