The Taiwan Connection

Evans, M. Stanton
March 1979
National Review;3/30/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 13, p423
The article discusses the decision of U.S. President Jimmy Carter to normalize country's relationship with China as of March 1979. In response to this decision, a legislation was introduced to counter Carter's initiative and offer assurances to China regarding Taiwan. Although most legislators are not arguing against the exchange of ambassadors in Peking, they are contesting the government's readiness to deal with Communists on terms such as the renunciation of the Mutual Defense Treaty with Taiwan and withdrawal of American forces from Taiwan.
