A report by Office of the Historian confirms that under the Nixon administration, the U.S. and China established diplomatic relations.After the end of the Chinese civil war in 1949, officials of the defeated Republic of China (ROC) evacuated to the island of Taiwan. This escalating war in Vietnam led U.S. officials to look for ways to improve relations with the Communist government. In 1972, U.S. President Richard M. Nixon visited China and became the first American president to visit the People's Republic of China to mark a Sino-American rapprochement to confirmed understandings on sensitive issues such as Taiwan and the normalization of diplomatic relations.

On 1 January 1979, under U.S. President Jimmy Carter the two countries officially established diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level. Further, the United States announced that it would sever its “diplomatic relations” with Taiwan, withdraw U.S. military forces from Taiwan, and terminate the Mutual Defense Treaty.
