Zhou Enlai was the prime minister under Mao Zedong. Zhou made the following comment in a discussion with U.S. President Richard Nixon on February 23, 1972:
"You know our policy. We don't discuss our policy. We of course support revolutions raged by the peoples of the world, but we don't send a single soldier abroad. The revolution of any country must depend on the people of their country. That was the case with George Washington, in your eight-year war of independence. Of course, at the time you had the assistance of the volunteers of Lafayette; they were not troops sent by the State of France." --Zhou Enlai, 1972
