The article reports that U.S. President Gerald R. Ford will visit China where he will meet Teng Hsiao-ping. It says that sorting out the leadership of China will be among the problems of Ford as Prime Minister Chou Enlai will not attend any meeting because he was desperately ill. It relates that Ford had already met Chou during his first visit to China in 1972 when he was still the House minority leader. It mentions that the meeting between Ford and Teng is expected to produce not much progress on issues such as the status of Taiwan or formal recognition between China and U.S. Moreover, it states that Ford had formed warm relationships with other foreign leaders such as Helmut Schmidt of West Germany, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing of France and Leonid Brezhnev.
