Nixon in China - Part 3

Nixon speech:

Thanks Chinese hosts for hospitality, food and American music.

... through the wonder of telecommunications, more people are seeing and hearing what we say than on any other such occasion ...

... If our two peoples are enemies the future of this world we share together is dark indeed. But if we can find common ground to work together, the chance for world peace is immeasurably increased... We have at times in the past been enemies. We have great differences today. What brings us together is that we have common interests which transcend those differences... But while we cannot close the gulf between us, we can try to bridge it so that we may be able to talk across it...

05:31:00 So, let us ... start a long march together ... on different roads leading to the same goal/... peace and justice in which all may stand together... The world watches. The world listens. The world waits to see what we will do...

05:32:36 What legacy shall we leave our children? Are they destined to die for the hatreds which have plagued the old world, or are they destined to live...

05:33:00 There is no reason for us to be enemies. Neither of us seeks the territory of the other; neither of us seeks domination over the other; neither of us seeks to stretch out our hands and rule the world.

Nixon quotes Chairman Mao: ...Seize the day, seize the hour."

This is the hour, this is the day for our two peoples to rise to the heights of greatness which can build a new and a better world.
