High Soviet official plans to visit China

Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Kapitsa will visit China next month, a government spokesman said. It will be the first trip to China by a top Kremlin official since Peking and Moscow split in 1960 over ideological and territorial disputes.

Mr. Kapitsa is expected to discuss an agenda for the next round of talks on normalization of Chinese-Soviet relations scheduled for October. The two rounds held since last October have not brought any breakthrough.
