Pres. Li of China arrives at 10 A.M. A beautiful day—bright & temp. only in the upper 70’s. Pres. Li is quite frail, so we had chairs on the podium—standing only for the Nat. Anthems & our own speeches. Then into the W.H. for a photo op. in the Green room & then our plenary meeting in the Blue Room. I think things went well. Taiwan was 1st on his agenda & I repeated our position—it’s a Chinese problem for them to settle peacefully. I was able to tell him all problems had been resolved for our agreement on Nuclear power.
Meeting ended about 11 A.M. Nancy & I saw them off at the diplomatic entrance.
Upstairs I got out of my “store bought clothes” & laid down for awhile.
An afternoon of reading, homework et al: Then the State dinner. It was somewhat abbreviated—no receiving line (at Pres. Li’s request). Also he went home before entertainment & so did I. But it was an enjoyable affair. [. . .]
