Soviet-China talks end without any breakthrough

Soviet negotiator Leonid Ilyichov had little to show for three weeks of hard work when he left China Saturday after a third round of talks with Deputy Foreign Minister Qian Qichen. The two countries hope to normalize two relations.

But a communique, agreed by the two sides and issued in Peking, said the talks ''proceeded in a calm and candid atmosphere.'' It said the two sides found the consultations useful and agreed to hold the next round of talks in Moscow in March 1984.

China's three main obstacles to progress are Moscow's troop and missile buildup along China's borders, its continuing military presence in Afghanistan, and its support for Vietnam's occupation of Cambodia. China has, however, gone ahead with resuming cultural, educational, and sports ties.
