He quoted a Chinese party news- paper as calling Thursday for "preparations to fight vSoviet revisionism in a conventional as well as the great nuclear war." Then he said: "The SovietUnion has sufficiently strong forces to defend itself and the Soviet people have strong nerves and will not be frightened."
