Title

Source 2 (1923) Sun-Joffe Declaration

Description

The Sun-Joffe Declaration was a formal agreement between the Nationalist Party and the Soviet Union. The agreement ensured that Russia had no desire to implement Communism in China. The document also states that the Soviet Union would not infringe upon the Chinese territory of Outer Mongolia. Although it is not written into the agreement, Sun had nevertheless allowed Communist Party members to join the Nationalist Party, a policy that Chiang Kai-Shek reversed following Sun's death in 1925. Sun ideologically agreed with the Soviet Union in certain respects, particularly the liberation of all countries from imperialism, something he emphasised in a letter to Russia from his deathbed.
