From China Daily:
In a signed article in the April 17 issue of the Financial Times, Robert Zoellick, the current governor of the World Bank and the former deputy secretary of the US State Department who first referred to China as a “stakeholder” in the international system, remarked that another important political document needed to be signed between the United States and China, joining the Shanghai Communique in 1972, the Joint Communique of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations in late 1978 and the communique in 1982.
Zoellick maintains that profound changes have taken place in US-China relations in the 35 years since former US President Richard Nixon came to China to open relations with the People’s Republic in 1972, and, as a result, the two countries’ common interests are in a period of realignment.
