High-quality color glossy 7 x 9.5 official German press photo of Kohl visiting the PROC in November of 1995, signed in black ink by Jiang Zemin (fifth president of the PROC from 1993–2003) in Chinese and by German Chancellor Helmut Kohl in black felt tip. Information on the reverse reads, in part: “[Kohl’s] conversation with China’s president Jiang Zhemin and Prime Minister Li Peng focused on reformatory politics and the economic opening as well as questions of human rights and the improvement of bilateral relations of both cultures.” In fine condition, with a slight crease to upper left corner and slight brushing to Kohl’s signature; Jiang’s autograph remains pristine. Under Jiang’s direction, China experienced significant developmental growth, though he was belittled by some for his eagerness to obtain approval from the outside world—a point fittingly pictured in this remarkable dual-signed photograph. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
