'As I stood in front of the grave (墓)
of President Richard
Nixon, I was thinking about the time 25 years ago when this president helped
bring the United States and China closer together. Young people of our two
countries should help this relationship grow. '
This remark was made by a Shanghai student when speaking to
his fellow students at the Nixon Library in California, U. S. A. He was one of
80 middle school students from China attending a month-long 'Youth Summit? The
Summit was to mark the 25th anniversary
(周年) of President Nixon's journey to
China, which was the turning point in China-U. S. relations.
The Youth Summit was aimed at increasing understanding and
friendship between young students of the two countries through visits and
discussions. Seventy-five American students were selected to visit China. They
also visited the Nixon Library on July 21 before leaving for Beijing the next
day. The head of the Library said he was pleased to see the American and Chinese
students talking and laughing together.
One Chinese student said, 'I didn't find it particularly
difficult to talk with Americans. We have our differences, but we have a lot in
common. Dialogue is good for us. '
