Does "content primarily to make pronouncements of a morally encouraging nature" mean "satisfied mainly to make statements that pronounced who were more moral"?

Context:

In both cases, the U.S. government supported
the government in power—the existing nationalist government
in Greece, and that of Chiang Kai-shek in China. In both cases,
Stalin watched from the sidelines, content primarily to make pronouncements of a morally encouraging nature.
The Chinese Communist Party succeeded in gaining power
in 1949 whereas the revolt of the Greek Communist Party was
completely crushed by the Greek National Army that same year.
The question is why? What were the crucial differences between
them that can account for the victory of communism in China
and its defeat in Greece?

It means satisfied mainly to make statements that motivate and inspire morality.

Where do you get the idea about "statements that pronounced who were more moral"?

Not exactly what I wanted to express. When you're confused by a sentence, sometimes it's hard to show accurately your question, and to save time, you scrape together whatever can be picked up in your mind...
