Communist China Joins UN- Replacing Taiwan
On October 25th, the U.N. approved the membership of Communist China thereby replacing Taiwan. For the first time, the United States did not use its veto power to block mainland China's admission. The change in U.S. position came about as the result of a gradual thaw in U.S.– Chinese relations. The U.S. trade embargo was lifted and a U.S. table tennis team made the first semi-official visit to mainland China in twenty years.
