Cold War Pakistani-American Alliance: Nixon & Yahya Meet in Washington DC, 1970

President of Pakistan Yahya Khan with United States President Richard Nixon.

The United States had been a major sponsor of President Yahya's military government, as noted in a reference written by Gary Bass in the "The Blood Telegram": "President Nixon liked very few people, but he did like General Yahya Khan." Personal initiatives of President Yahya had helped to establish the communication channel between the United States and the China, which would be used to set up the Nixon's trip in 1972.
