On October 25, 1971, the People’s Republic of China was recognized by the UN General Assembly as “the only legitimate representative of China to the United Nations,” and the UN vote removed the representatives of Taiwan from the United Nations. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the PRC’s role at the UN, Xinhua conducted a video interview with Schiller Institute representative at the UN, Richard A. Black.

The 4-minute interview is out on Xinhua‘s Twitter feed and can be viewed here. The written article is available here.
