        Carters with Deng Xiaoping and Madame Zhuo Lin

        In 1949, the Communist Party seized power in China, and in response, the United States severed diplomatic relations. Thirty years later, the United States resumed diplomatic relations with China, and this 1979 photograph shows President Jimmy Carter, Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping, First Lady Rosalynn Carter and Madame Zhuo Lin stop for a formal pose on their way to the state dinner for the Vice Premier of China. It was the first time a Communist Chinese leader had visited the United States.
