1965 Press Conference with ROC Minister of Defense Chiang Ching-Kuo and President Johnson

 Press conference from 1965.  The question about China's nuclear reactors was especially interesting because of today's parallels with a similar issue involving North Korea. Much in the same way that today's North Korea is seen as a "wildcard rogue state", China was in many ways even more rogue in 1965. While today's DPRK is at least partially contained by Beijing's economic leverage, China had no such state in which it deferred to regarding its military ambitions.
