Nixon blocked Soviet nuclear attack on China?

So claims a new article sanctioned by China’s communist party. According to the article, the USSR notified the United States of its planned attack against China and asked the US to remain neutral. Nixon responded that any Soviet attack on China would be deemed as the beginning of a general attack, and the US would respond.

I have no idea if it’s true or not, but it’s very interesting.
