Improved ties with Peking are outlined by Reagan

Ronald Reagan outlined a four-point plan Monday which calls for improved relations with the People's Republic of China, a pledge to work for peace, stability, and economic growth in the western Pacific, and a mutual effort with all countries in the area to "stand firm against aggression or search for hegemony which threaten the peace and stability of the area." He said relations with Taiwan should continue in accordance with the Taiwan Relations Act, passed when the United States recognized the mainland government.

He said the act called for official US relations with Taiwan to be funded by Congress with public money, the expenditure of which would be audited by the Comptroller General of the United States and congressional oversight for which would be performed by two standing committees of the Congress.
