However, it is unlikely that the Vietnamese considered it an advantage to be represented through the PRC; it was rather seen as the only available option at the time. There is no doubt that recognition from China and the Soviet Union was of vital importance to the DRV leaders. The Western powers did, of course, see the situation from a different perspective. In Washington the main concern was the reports of an ever-growing Chinese assistance to the Vietminh. China’s new strength increased American fears of Communist expansion in the area.

Another central focus in this chapter is Moscow’s overall agenda, which was not only about the future situation in Indochina. An equally important driving force behind Soviet strategies and diplomacy during the Geneva conference was the need to secure Moscow’s foreign policy interests, both in Indochina and in other parts of the world. To what extent was this position compatible with its commitments to its Chinese and Vietnamese allies? Together with the PRC, the Soviet Union shared a common desire to end the wars in the region, and during the conference the two countries followed a line of consultations and close cooperation.

The unsuccessful attempts at establishing relations with the Americans were followed by an attempt to secure assistance from the Soviet Union in the fall of 1947. But Moscow was no more eager than Washington to assist the Vietnamese, and the DRV was rejected once again. Even after the French Communists were expelled from the government, Moscow remained reluctant to support the Vietminh in their struggle against the French forces. Thus, by the end of 1948 the Vietnamese Communists had to realize that their attempts to secure Soviet support in their war against the French had failed.
