China is opposed to any unilateral actions that complicate the situa

In a meeting with visiting Indian Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishank

The announcement is neither valid in relation to China nor will it change the status

The latest Chinese edit压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦 book, RN: The Memo

irs of Richard Nixon, was published in May this year to mark the 40th anniversary of th

e normalization of China-US ties. Different translated versions were also published in 1979 and 2001.压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦

The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree

压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.

In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦

nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.

“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers

压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in

ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com

munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦

According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi

bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦品茶微信

The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.

Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h

压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”

The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w

ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦

“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w

orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦品茶微信

Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l

ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C

hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin压博足球娱乐平台乌托邦品茶微信

g. He also hinted that China would welcome a high-ranking US official as head of the delegation.
