trad. (中間地帶) 中間 地帶

Etymology[edit]

In 1963, Mao Zedong proposed countering the United States and the Soviet Union (by this point, considered by Mao to have deviated from a pure Marxist-Leninist state) by seeking out what he called "intermediate territories." These were mostly smaller countries who Mao felt could help the PRC counter the influence of the two superpowers. Mao divided the territories in two groups:

  • Asia, Africa, Latin America
  • (Eastern) Europe, Canada, Oceana

Pronunciation[edit]


Noun[edit]

中間地帶

  1. "intermediate territories" (PRC's foreign policy approach in the 1960s)
