China Vs Soviets
Chinese: The aid they were getting had too many strings attached and the soviets were asking for territorial concession
Soviet: Left Mao Zedong to wait for 2 months before they persuaded him to sign a treaty of friendship, alliance, and mutual assistance. " Unequal treaty"
Soviet: Started taking little back from what was given to the Chinese and gave more to new countries to encourage their communism.
Both the soviets and the chinese began to call each other names such as " revisionist" and " left winged adventurist"
