Q: The former President pro tempore of the US Senate Ted Stevens died in a plane crash on August 9. How does China comment?
A: Former President pro tempore of the US Senate Ted Stevens was a veteran US statesman and an old friend of the Chinese people. During the Second World War, he fought the war in China as a member of the famous Flying Tigers, rendering invaluable support to the Chinese people's war against Fascism. During his tenure as a US senator and President pro tempore of the US Senate, he made important contribution to China-US legislative exchanges and bilateral relations. We express our deep condolences over his death and sincere sympathy to his family.
