Don't Squelch China's Spirit


Readers Report

DON'T SQUELCH CHINA'S SPIRIT

Regarding your article "Will China remain a most-favored dictatorship?" (Top of the News, July 29): We were traveling with our daughter, a language student at Beijing University, and had a number of unusual opportunities to converse with Chinese people of all social and economic strata.

The Chinese were quite candid about the repression they face. Nonetheless, they believe that increased commerce with the U. S. would promote change in their government's policies. We should realize that the Tiananmen Square protests were a direct result of the growth in Western trade and contacts during the 1980s. The quickest way to squelch that spirit would be to deny most-favored-nation status.
