Western governments are considering temporary measures to help the Soviet Union through a looming debt crisis, sources said Thursday, but a top U.S. official insisted that forgiving the loans permanently is out of the question. The issue is likely to dominate a meeting in Bangkok, Thailand, later this month between Soviet officials and the so-called Group of Seven.

The Soviet Union and its republics surely need a helping hand. But whether help from the West will do much good is an open question. The Soviet economy is in disarray, and getting aid to the people will be tough. Food has to be shipped efficiently; cash may well go to waste; technical advice doesn't work quickly. And then there's the question of who to deal with: the central government, the republics, private groups or entrepreneurs?

The first seven-nation economic summit to be held since the end of the Cold War has barely gotten under way, but already it is providing a telling glimpse of how hard it will be for the allies to get along without the fear of the Soviet Bloc to unite them. Beneath the customary gloss of cosmetic diplomacy, this may go down in history as the Go-Your-Own-Way Summit. "It's a Go-Your-Own-Way and Do-What-You-Want sort of thing," says Carol A. Brookins, president of World Perspectives Inc.
