Former U.S. Ambassador to China Winston Lord on the Current State of Sino-American Relations
Winston Lord has been at the center of U.S.-China relations for four decades. As a Special Assistant to the National Security Adviser, Lord accompanied Henry Kissinger on his secret trip to Beijing in 1971, which laid the groundwork for President Nixon’s historic visit to China the following year. Lord attended Nixon’s February 1972 meeting with Mao Zedong, and was involved in the negotiations which led to the signing of the Shanghai Communique. He later served as the U.S. ambassador to China under Presidents Reagan and Bush from 1985-89, and as Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia during President Clinton’s first term.
In the interview below, conducted by U.S.-China Institute Senior Fellow Mike Chinoy, Lord discusses current tensions in Sino-American relations. This video is also available in High Definition on the USCI Youtube Channel.
