This episode is Part II of a two-part conversation with Ambassador Freeman. In Part I, Ambassador Freeman shared his memories from the periods of rapprochement and normalization. Ambassador Freeman played a large role behind the scenes during this time period, including as the principal U.S. interpreter for President Nixon’s 1972 trip to China.
