Friday, May 22, 2009

TOKYO (Nikkei)--China values former U.S. president George W. Bush's efforts, "as he laid a groundwork for the two countries to exchange views with candor," said Professor Zhu Jianrong of Toyo Gakuen University at an international forum here Friday.

Bush, who is often criticized for his unilateralism, actively engaged in discussions with China over the last five to six years, eliciting China's contribution for the East Asia region, said the professor.

Titles of speakers, names of companies, etc., were correct as of the time when the forum was held.
