Chapter Summary

One of the main objectives of the communist Chinese government was to gain diplomatic recognition from Japan as the sole representative of China. Economic relations became an important tool of this political objective. The Chinese policy was called the 'principle of inseparability of political and economic relations'. The Cultural Revolution which erupted in the spring of 1966 led China on a road to isolation. In 1967 China recalled a majority of ambassadors from abroad, two Indian diplomats were arrested in Beijing and the British Deputy Chief of the Mission's office was looted. The most important approach was made by China to the Komei Party delegation in June 1971, concerning the three basic principles for the resumption of relations, China is one entity, Taiwan is a part of China and The Treaty between Japan and Taiwan of 1952 is unlawful and invalid.
