Description: Over the past three decades, no area of U.S. foreign policy has been more dramatic than the opening and development of relations with the People's Republic of China. And on no policy subject has the National Security Council played a more central role. From Henry Kissinger's secret journey to Beijing in July 1971 to Anthony Lake's trip a quarter century later in the wake of military confrontation in the Taiwan Straits, the assistant to the president for national security affairs has personally played a leading role. All governments take it particularly seriously when the American president sends his personal aide to them on a negotiating mission. The Chinese government has particularly invited, and welcomed, such White House engagement in diplomacy.
