People's Daily and Christopher Nixon Cox Discuss US-China Relations in New Documentary Series

Press Release – updated: Jan 24, 2020 10:03 PST

SAN FRANCISCO, January 24, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Christopher Nixon Cox, the grandson of President Richard Nixon, met with People’s Daily Online West USA as part of an ongoing documentary series “A Story Spanning 40 Years”. Mr. Cox was born in 1979, when the United States and the People’s Republic of China first established diplomatic relations. In 1972, his grandfather President Nixon embarked on the “ice-breaking journey” in U.S.-China relations, which went on to launch formal diplomatic ties. In his interview with People’s Daily Online West USA, he shares his desire to build on the friendship between the two countries that was established 40 years ago.
In an interview held in Mr. Cox’s New York apartment, he shared that his grandfather was fond of talking about China with him since a young age, and Beijing was the capital he visited most after Washington D.C. Mr. Cox wants to be a new “old friend” of the Chinese people. He has visited China at least 60 times and believes that it is excellent for China to have new old friends to help the relationship continue to prosper into the next generation.
In the documentary, Mr. Cox said, “I would like to pick up the torch and to carry the torch on the next generation of Chinese American thinkers … The Chinese are very logical. You can make arguments to the Chinese and change opinions if you do it based on logic and if you do it based on common interests. And that’s really what diplomacy is all about.”

People's Daily Online West USA Premieres Documentary Series on US-China Diplomatic Ties

Press Release – updated: Jan 21, 2020 13:00 PST

SAN FRANCISCO, January 21, 2020 (Newswire.com) – People’s Daily Online West USA held the premiere for their short documentary series on the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, also launching the ceremony “reading China from multiple cities and one book” at the San Francisco Public Library on Jan. 18, 2020.
China and the United States established formal diplomatic relations on January 1, 1979. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, People’s Daily Online West USA took six months to shoot a documentary involving travel over 9,900 miles from the East Coast to the West Coast of the United States. The ten interviewed guests are witnesses to, and builders of, China-U.S. relations over the past 40 years. The documentary interviewed: Christopher Nixon Cox, an American lawyer based in New York, son of Tricia Cox and Edward Cox and grandson of President Nixon and First Lady Pat Nixon; Neil Mallon Bush, fourth of six children of former President George H. W. Bush and brother of President George W. Bush; Stephen A. Orlins, President of the National Committee since 2005.
Wang Donghua, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China to San Francisco, who attended the premiere, said, “It is meaningful for us to hold an event like this, which will help us review the development of China-U.S. relations, summarize the experience and lessons of China-U.S. cooperation, and think about ways for the two major countries to live in peace and resolve their differences.” Wang said the event was a good entry point and focused on how to read China. At present, China-U.S. relations are facing unprecedented difficulties. One important reason is that we don’t have enough mutual understanding. “There are far more Chinese who know America than there are Americans who know China. It shows how important it is to have events like today.” Florence Fang, a Chinese-American businesswoman, publisher, and former owner of the San Francisco Examiner, was also featured in the documentary. She congratulated the success of the documentary at the premiere and hopes to make more contributions to China-U.S. relations in the future. Michael Lambert, City Librarian at San Francisco Public Library, said at the premiere that, as the subject of the documentary, “Vision and conviction will take China-U.S. relations forward; we believe that vision and conviction will promote understanding and goodwill between our people.”
People’s Daily Online is a large-scale news platform built by People’s Daily, the largest newspaper group in China. Wei Deng, the head of People’s Daily Online West USA, said that, through interviews with those having significant background contributions to relations between China and the United States, the efforts to build up the bridge of communication through real records and reflections on history and mutual trust can be enhanced and the exchanges between the two countries expanded. At the end of the ceremony, People’s Daily Online West USA donated a batch of books on Chinese traditional culture in English to the San Francisco Library.
