From Reuters

China and the Soviet Union agreed Thursday on a program of educational and research exchanges for 1985-86, the New China News Agency said.

The protocol was the latest in a series of economic and cultural contacts between the two countries, which are gradually resuming cooperation after more than 20 years of icy relations since an ideological split in the late 1950s.

Under the pact, signed by China’s Education Ministry and the Soviet Ministry of Higher and Secondary Specialized Education, the two will exchange students and teachers to lecture and to conduct research.
