On this day in 1972: Nixon's visit to China

During the visit, the talks between President Nixon and the Chairman of the Communist Party, Mao Tse Tung ended the long deadlock between the two countries and started a new geopolitical era. During that time, both the leaders agreed that the United States and China should move together to maintain permanent peace in the world.

However, US President Nixon and his security advisor Henry Kissinger are said to have joined hands with Mao as a way to weaken the global influence of the then Soviet Union. During the visit, Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai described Nixon as "a visionary leader who knows how to control a ship when a storm comes."

US President Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974 after it was confirmed that he would be impeached in the 'Watergate Scandal'. Two years later, Mao and Chou died. After that, Deng Xiaoping, who took the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party, opened up China's economy to the outside world.
