Nixon in China

On the 21st of February, 1972, President Richard Nixon arrived in China.  Keeping his negotiations about the visit quiet, Nixon believed that a week-long summit might help to improve diplomatic relations between the two countries.

This clip, from the Nixon Library, contains highlights from that historic visit.  Of note is the exceptional skill of the President's Chinese interpreter.
