Diplomats laud Brzezinski's China visit

TOKYO (AP)-Diplomats in Peking
yesterday said Zbigniew Brzezinski's
talks with Chinese leaders fostered a
new mood of Chinese-American
cooperation after months of uncertain-
ty and spurred chances for establishing
full diplomatic ties, Japanese
correspondents reported.
Brzezinski, President Carter's
national security adviser, briefed
Japanese officials on the talk yesterday
after flying in from the Chinese capital.
He told Japanese Prime Minister Takeo
Fukuda the United States intends to
strengthen its ties with China and pur-
sue full diplomatic relations.
CHINA AND THE United States
opened liaison offices in Washington
and Peking in 1973. The mainland
government has balked at establishing
full ties so long as Washington con-
tinues to recognize Taiwan, which
Peking claims as part of China.
The American envoy flies to South
Korea today, the last stop on his Asian
tour. President Park Chung-hee's
government is expected to seek his
assessment of China's views on the
Korean situation.

Chinese Premier Hua Kuo-feng
visited North Korea earlier this month
and angered South Korean officials by
endorsing the government of Kim II-
sung as the only legitimate Korean
government. Hua also backed Kim's
demand that the United States pull out
all its troops from the South.
BRZEZINSKI HAS steered clear of
reporters during his Asian tour and it
was not known if he achieved any hard
diplomatic breakthroughs in Peking.
Diplomats in Peking, quoted by
Japanese correspondents, suggested
the talks speeded the normalization
process. But Tokyo Foreign Ministry
officials told Japanese reporters they
had the impression some things still
had to be worked out before the United
staes and China could make a definite
move toward full time.
Chinese Premier Hua Kuo-feng,
senior Vice Premier Teng Hsiano-ping
and Foreign Minster Huang Hua
engaged Brzezinski in "frank and
serious" discussions, China's official
Hsinhua news agency later described
as "beneficial." Speaking at a farewell
bannuet Mondav night B ~ninki cid

the meetings were "useful, important
and constructive."
SECRETARY OF State Cyrus Vance
was the last American diplomat to visit
Peking. After his talks in August, the
Chinese said relations had been set
back rather than advanced.
The Chinese appeared to respond
more warmly to Brzezinski, who shares
their anxiety over Soviet intentions.
Brzezinski is said to believe that a
firm U.S.-China alliance would be a
beneficial balance in talks with the
Soviet Union on arms limitation and
might discourage Russian operations in
Africa and the Mideast. The Chinese,
for their part, regard closer ties with
Washington as a deterrent to Soviet in-
cursions in Asia.
