Ping-pong

"Ping-pong diplomacy" between the United States and China began 30 years ago. Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is in Beijing to commemorate the event while Vice Premier Qian Qichen is in the United States. China warned the United States Tuesday not to sell arms to Taiwan and threaten 30 years of "ping-pong dimplomacy" that paved the way for formal bilateral ties between the United States and China.
