The objective conditions under which the Communist Party of China was formed and acted predetermined the prevalence of petty bourgeois tendencies and the advancement to its leadership of political figures like Mao Zedong who strove to establish his individual rule over the Party, consolidate its anti-Soviet, anti- Communist positions, turn it into an instrument for achievement of his great-power, hegemonistic aims. Alter a bitter struggle the Maoists managed to remove from the Party, and political life in general, Communists who, guided by Marxism-Leninism, supported friendly relations with the USSR and cooperation with the world Communist movement. The Maoists imposed upon the Party and the state their own anti-popular course fraught with danger for the cause of peace.

In foreign policy and the drive for modernisation the Beijing leaders are cooperating with the USA and other capitalist countries.
