The Hongwu Emperor allowed foreign envoys to visit the capitals at Nanjing and Beijing, but enacted strict legal prohibitions of private maritime trade by Chinese merchants wishing to travel abroad. After the death of Timur, who intended to invade China, the relations between the Yongle Emperor's China and Shakhrukh (Shah Rukh (Timurid dynasty))'s state in Persia and Transoxania state considerably improved. Both the Chinese envoy to Samarkand and Herat, Chen Cheng (Chen Cheng (Ming Dynasty)), and his opposite party, Ghiyāth al-dīn Naqqāsh left detailed accounts of their visits to each other's country. The first Jesuit missionaries to visit China (Jesuit China missions) did so during the Ming Dynasty. The most prominent one was the Italian (Macerata) Jesuit Matteo Ricci (1552–1610). Matteo is famous in China and the West for many reasons. He was the first to translate the Chinese classic texts into a Western language (Latin), and the first to translate the name of the most prominent Chinese philosopher (Chinese philosophy) Kong Fuzi as Confucius. Along with another Jesuit father, he was the first European to enter the Forbidden City of Beijing, during the reign of the Wanli Emperor. Matteo Ricci and his baptized Chinese colleague, the mathematician (Chinese mathematics), astronomer (Chinese astronomy), and agronomist (agronomy) Xu Guangqi (1562–1633), were the first to translate the ancient Greek mathematical (Greek mathematics) treatise of ''Euclid's Elements'' into Chinese. thumb upright The former residence of Envoy (title) Envoy (File:Schneider mansion.jpg) Wu Tingfang and the Office of the Qing (Qing Dynasty) Legation to the United States, in the Dupont Circle (Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C.) neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

Titsingh's French translator, Chrétien-Louis-Joseph de Guignes published his own account of the Titsingh mission in 1808. ''Voyage a Pékin, Manille et l'Ile de France'' provided an alternate perspective and a useful counterpoint to other reports which were then circulating. Titsingh himself died before he could publish his version of events. 1990s As the mid-1990s approached, slow but steady improvement in relations with China was visible. Top-level dialogue continued with the December 1991 visit of PRC premier Li Peng to India and the May 1992 visit to China of Indian president (president of India) R. Venkataraman. Six rounds of talks of the Indian-Chinese Joint Working Group on the Border Issue were held between December 1988 and June 1993. Progress was also made in reducing tensions on the border via confidence-building measures, including mutual troop reductions, regular meetings of local military commanders, and advance notification of military exercises. Border trade resumed in July 1992 after a hiatus of more than thirty years, consulates reopened in Bombay (Mumbai) and Shanghai in December 1992, and, in June 1993, the two sides agreed to open an additional border trading post. During Sharad Pawar's July 1992 visit to Beijing, the first ever by an Indian minister of defence, the two defense establishments agreed to develop academic, military, scientific, and technological exchanges and to schedule an Indian port call by a Chinese naval (People's Liberation Army Navy) vessel.

academic humor

opined that: "For an English NPOV encyclopedia, I think the term "Hebrew Bible" is completely adequate for the Tanakh Torah Miqra. I find this discussion unnecessarily polemical and political. Numerous Christian and Jewish academics use "Hebrew Bible" as the best (yet) effort at a neutral terminology, moving away from Old Testament. Sure, I wouldn't use this term among Jews (except w my wry academic humor) but Wikipedia is for a general English-speaking audience
