National Review;4/28/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 17, p527
The article discusses U.S. foreign relations with Taiwan and China under President Jimmy Carter. Two documents have an impact on near-term relations, namely, the Mutual Defense Treaty between China and the U.S., and the Shanghai Communique of February 27, 1972. The Shanghai Communique declared Taiwan as a province of China and that no foreign country has the right to interfere in Taiwan's liberation.
