    Background: Fresh back from his historic visit to the People's Republic of China President Nixon met Congress leaders on Tuesday (Feb. 29) and sought to reassure them that American policy on taiwan has not changed.

    The President stressed that reference in the communique issued jointly by himself and Chinese Premier Chou En-lai to withdrawal of American troops from Taiwan was just another application of the Nixon doctrine of withdrawing troops from overseas as tensions diminish.

    Comments of congressmen later confirmed observers' impressions that the President has won general approval for his China initiative.

    White House walls were already decorated Tuesday with photographs of the visit.
