    CARTER: "We believe that this new development is conducive to peace to stability and to progress throughout the Asian region of the world. We also see it as a means by which we can share long-ranged strategic concerns, to minimise the threat of the Soviet military build-up, which is exemplified most vividly by their unwarranted invasion of........Afghanistan, and their support of the Vietnamese invasion of Kampuchea. We believe that this new relationship, however, should not be used by either our country, or Japan, with China against the Soviet Union. We should not combine our efforts against another nation, but we should combine our efforts to maintain peace, and the freedom of each country to make its own decisions, free of outside interference, and certainly free of an invasion."
