The Soviet Union and China have settled most of their differences over the disputed eastern section of the Sino-Soviet border, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said today.

At the conclusion of border negotiations that began Oct. 20, Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze met with the chief Chinese negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Tian Zeng Pei, said spokesman Gennady I. Gerasimov. He said that talks would continue on remaining areas of dispute along the eastern border and that the two sides agreed to form a joint working group on their differences over the western frontier.
