As military tensions continue to mount between China and Taiwan, new U.S. Ambassador James R. Sasser on Wednesday formally presented his credentials to China's President Jiang Zemin, ending an awkward eight-month period in which the United States had no ambassador to the world's most populous country.

Retaliating against the United States for allowing Taiwanese President Lee Teng-hui to visit last week, China on Friday recalled its ambassador from Washington, sinking U.S.-China relations to the lowest level since the 1989 Tian An Men Square crackdown on pro-democracy activists. The recall of Ambassador Li Daoyu "to report on his work in view of the current state of Sino-U.S. relations" was announced here in a terse statement by Foreign Ministry spokesman Shen Guofang.
