Study says China no threat to India, Taiwan

China poses no immediate military threat to Taiwan or India. The country also lacks the ability to resist Soviet attack because of technical, economic, and political problems, according to an Asia Society study.

The study found the gap between China and the Soviet Union - the main military threat to the Chinese defense force - will widen rather than narrow through the rest of the 1980s. The study's conclusions generally correspond to those of a Central Intelligence Agency analysis released earlier this week by a congressional committee.
