St, PsTERsai'Ra, April 2(. M. Ssson
off, the Mlnlstsr of Foreign Affairs, out
lined Russia's foreign policy In an sble
speech In the Duma to-day, dealing at
great length with her relations with
China. The kernel of his statement
was that Itusala did not seek territorial
expansion In Asia which would be cal
culated to weaken her position In ths
nesr Kast. She did not Intend to an.
nex Mongolia, but only to protect Rus
sian Interests In parts 'of China con
tiguous to Asiatic Russia. Otherwise,
said the Foreign Minister, the attitude
of Russia would be entirely neutral snd
If Intervention were ever necessary she
would adopt America's suggestion that
ull the Interested countries act to
gether. Referring specifically to northern
Mongolia, otherwise Khalkla, M. Sazo.
noff said that Russls had refused sllke
the demands of those who had clamored
for a protectorate or those who urged
absolute Inactivity. Khalkla, he said,
had seceded from China owing In the
fsct( that the Istter had persistently Ig
nored her needs and had attempted to
quarter Chinese troops In the country
and colonize It with Chinese, Never
theless, said the Minister, the country
was not prepared for Independence. It
was lacking In Isaders, money and an
army. Separation from China would
therefore compel Russia to occupy the
country or allow the Chinese to reenter
it as conquerors.
tt waa with a view of escaping this
dilemma, M, Saxonuff continued, that
Russia agreed to mediate between Mon
golia and China on condition that the
latter cease imposing troops and colon
ists on the Mongols.
.The administrators of Chins, M. 8ao
noff said, probably with a lew of re
establishing the power of that country
and avoiding Kusslsn Interposition, are
now trying to draw the Mongolians to
ward the republic by promising equal
rights to all citizens.
"Notwithstanding this.' 'said M. Sazo
nog, "we do not see any reason to alter
the aim set by ourselves. Our Interests
only require that there be no military
state In Mongolia. Thanks to the neigh
borhood of the Mongolians our Siberian
frontier is better protected than If we
built fortresses along it. Russian di
plomacy ought to aim at preserving
this situation, and that is why we In

without our participation. Meanwhile
we ought not to withhold from Khalkla
the support and succor for creating the

that the respective positions of Kusela
