The Influence of the New Clinton Government on SinoâAmerican Economic and Trade Relations


  • Zhou Shijian


In June 1995, when Lee Teng-hui visited the United States, SinoâAmerican relations fell to their lowest point since the establishment of diplomatic relations. In the spring of 1996, our troops conducted military maneuvers in the Taiwan Strait, and the United States dispatched two aircraft carriers to the Taiwan Strait to back up and encourage the Taiwan Independence forces. China and the United States were almost on the verge of "drawing swords and arming crossbows."
