Looking again at 50 years of “panda diplomacy” between U.S. and China

After a number of Chinese pandas have been taken from Washington, D.C., earlier this month, Chinese President Xi Jinping signaled that extra of the furry creatures, who he referred to as "envoys of friendship," will come to the U.S. quickly.
