On February 21, 1936, MAO Zedong, Zhang Wentian and Peng Dehuai issued an order to Li Kenong in the name of the CPC Central Committee and the Military Commission.The directive states: ‘It is assumed that Zhang Xueliang is willing to continue negotiations with us for a non-aggression agreement.’Our strategy: to separate Chang Xueliang from Chiang Kai-shek everywhere;To seek the conclusion of a non-aggression pact;Insist on the anti-japanese national Salvation congress, insist on the inseparability of resistance against the traitors;If Zhang Xueliang proposes the abolition of the Soviet Union, we propose the abolition of the Nanjing government, and at the Anti-japanese national Salvation Congress preliminary discussions will be held on the abolition of the two governments and the establishment of a political system by the popular will of the whole nation.If Zhang Xueliang proposes to abolish riots, then we propose to abolish all kuomintang oppression and feudal exploitation.They demanded an end to the civil war, did not obstruct the concentration of the Red Army in Hebei, and did not object to the red Army serving as an advance team against Japan;Principles should not be compromised and negotiations should not be broken.On February 21, 1943, MAO Zedong sent a message to Stalin, the Central Committee of the United Communist Party of China and the soldiers of the Red Army to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Soviet Red Army and the great victory of the Red Army’s counter-offensive.The message pointed out that the Red Army and the Soviet people were the mainstay of the resistance to fascist violence and the vanguard of creating a new peaceful world.The world situation had changed markedly since the beginning of the Red Army’s war against Germany, and the future of the new world was now clearer and more certain as a result of the Red Army’s victory.Fascist systems and ideas in all their forms have lost their place in the world forever.National freedom and political democracy have become the unmovable principles of the new world. We Chinese people welcome the arrival of this new era, and we welcome the unity and efforts of all anti-fascist forces around the world to strive for this new era.The primary task for the Chinese people in this new era is to unite themselves more closely and prepare to drive out the Japanese invaders just as the Red Army drove out the German invaders.We believe that, thanks to the concerted efforts of the Chinese people, the victory of the Soviet Union, Britain and the United States and their assistance to China, we too will be able to turn to the counter-offensive and win the final victory.On February 21, 1962, Liu Shaoqi presided over an enlarged meeting of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee (also known as the Xi Lou Meeting) in the West building of Zhongnanhai to discuss the state budget and economic situation in 1962.Chen Yun made systematic comments at the meeting on the 23rd, analyzing the main manifestations of the current economic difficulties and proposing six measures to solve them: the ten-year economic plan is divided into recovery stage and development stage;Continue to reduce the urban population;Take all measures to curb inflation;Make every effort to ensure the minimum living needs of urban people;Devote all possible resources to increasing agricultural production;The planning authorities should shift their main attention from industry and transportation to increasing agricultural production and curbing inflation.On these six measures, Chen Yun made further elucidations at an enlarged meeting of The State Council on 26th.These speeches formed the basis of the West Building conference and a series of policies that were drastically revised.On February 21, 1972, MAO Zedong met with Visiting US President Richard Nixon and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The two sides exchanged views seriously and candidly.In the evening, Zhou enlai held a welcome banquet and made a toast, pointing out that thanks to the joint efforts of both Sides, the door of friendly exchanges had finally opened.The social systems of China and the United States are fundamentally different, and there are huge differences between the two governments.However, such differences should not prevent China and the United States from establishing normal state-to-state relations based on the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, still less should they lead to war.We hope that by having a frank exchange of views, sorting out our differences, and working to find common ground, we can make a fresh start in the relationship between our two countries.This speech is included in the second volume of Selected Works of Zhou Enlai.On February 21, 1936, the Central government of the Soviet People’s Republic of China issued “electrify”.The telegram called for the immediate convening of the National Congress of Resistance against Japanese Aggression and National Salvation, formally organizing the national defense government and the anti-Japanese Allied forces, and initiating concrete steps for the war of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.On February 21, 1951, the Central People’s Government promulgated the Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Punishing Counter-revolutionaries.In accordance with the Party’s policy of combining repression with leniency, the regulations stipulate the principles and methods for handling counter-revolutionary cases, providing legal weapons and sentencing standards for suppressing counter-revolutionary struggles, and promoting the extensive and in-depth development of the movement.This spring saw a nationwide upsurge in the suppression of the counter-revolutionary mass movement.On May 16, the CPC Central Committee approved the resolution of the third National Public Security Conference.By this time a great victory had been achieved in suppressing the counter-revolutionary movement.In view of the fact that a large number of counter-revolutionary criminals had been arrested in some areas and there was an urgent need to clean them up, “left-leaning” tendencies and sloppy work had begun to occur in some areas, the resolution stipulated that from now on, the anti-revolutionary work would adopt the policy of prudent contraction and concentrate on dealing with accumulated cases.By the end of 1952, the counterinsurgency work was basically over.On February 21, 1955, The State Council issued the Order on issuing New RMB and Withdrawing existing RMB.Since March 1, the People’s Bank of China has issued new RMB, and the old RMB will be recovered at the replacement ratio of 1 new RMB to 10,000 old RMB.From February 21 to 28, 1972, US President Richard Nixon visited China.Before that, the U.S. table tennis delegation was invited to Visit China in April 1971.U.S. National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger visited China twice in July and October 1971.During Nixon’s visit to China, MAO Zedong met with him and Zhou Enlai held talks with him.China and the United States issued a joint communique in Shanghai on April 28, marking the beginning of the process of normalizing bilateral relations.On February 21, 1953, MAO Zedong wrote an inscription for the PLA Navy.On February 21, 1972, Chairman MAO Zedong met with US President Richard Nixon.National Narcotics Control Commission office reminds you: Cherish life away from drugs submission email: zhongguojindu@qq.com
