    Background: Former president of the United States, Richard Nixon, arrived in China on September 6 for a five-day tour to mark the anniversary of his historic visit ten years ago which paved the way for diplomatic relations between the two countries. Tension over the sale of arms to Taiwan apparently delayed his visit, which should have taken place in February, the actual anniversary. After talks in Beijing on September 7th with Party Vice-Chairman Deng Xiaoping and Prime Minister Zhao Ziyang, Mr. Nixon called for stronger ties and more trade between China and the United States. He will meet other senior government officials before flying to Shanghai where the historic communique ending two decades of hostilities was signed.
