The China Card
America's relations with China are in crisis; President Reagan's decision to sell 60 million dollars of military equipment to the fiercely anti-Communist regime in Taiwan is denounced by Peking as a serious breach of sovereignty. This diplomatic chill has encouraged President Brezhnev to play his ' China Card' and to try to woo China back into the Russian camp. With the superpowers again battling for influence in Peking, Keith Kyle reports from Taiwan -nervous of an American sell-out-and from Washington - anxious to avoid a collapse in its accord with Peking.
