I think you are taking things a bit out of context here. I sort of view that as a trade-off, for Soviet non-interference during China's invasion of Mongolia and Tibet. And whoever says Moscow is weak? Definitely, their economy is in shambles, but when you are a nuclear power, there's no such thing as being weak. And China is still very much reliant on Russian technologies in a lot of things, for example of particular interest recently, space travel and fighter planes.Originally Posted by GDSNP
I don't think I'm a China threat theorist. But the fact is, there are countries that do view China as a threat at present. And as I said, China may not be making efforts in regaining the ceded land now. But what's to ensure that they WILL NOT in future? Countries don't make decisions simply because of present events, they make decisions that will ensure the progress of their national interest in the future.
