ABSTRACT
Despite the groundwork laid by the then-Secretary of the Navy John Lehman with his visit to China in 1984, it took more than two years of political wrangling before the United States Navy ships visited a Chinese port. Principal impediments were New Zealand Prime Minister David Lange and Chinese Communist Party leader Hu Yaobang. On November 5, 1986, three ships steamed into Qingdao. The arrival of this small flotilla for a seven-day port visit—the first by the United States ships to mainland China since the end of World War II—marked the end of more than two years of intense, sensitive, and frustrating diplomatic negotiations.
