Allen first visited the Chinese mainland in 1979, the year when China and the United States established their diplomatic relations.
"With the joint efforts of the two sides, we hope to take the relationship back to the right track despite current disturbances and difficulties. This is the best way to honor General Scowcroft," it said.
"If we have a close look at the history of our relations since President (Richard) Nixon's visit to China, or since Dr. (Henry) Kissinger visit to China, several things are quite clear," said the ambassador.

Since Hong Kong's return to the motherland, the practice of "one country, two systems" has proven to be an enormous success, Zhao said, and Hong Kong residents enjoy unprecedented democracy and rights and freedoms in accordance with law.
In recent years, for example, Washington has withdrawn from the Paris Agreement, UNESCO, the UN Human Rights Council, and the Global Compact for Migration.
"China's door to dialogue remains open. We are willing, in the spirit of equality and open-mindedness, to talk and interact with the United States, and resume dialogue mechanisms at all levels and in all fields," said Wang.
In response, the Chinese mission said "Hong Kong is a region based on the rule of law," stressing that "the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has clear provisions on respect for and protection of human rights, and protection of rights and freedoms including freedom of speech and the press."
China will not dance to the U.S. tune, and will not sit idly by if the United States harms China's interests, Teng Jianqun, director of the Department for American Studies at the China Institute of International Studies, told Xinhua in an interview.
National security legislation is also a common legal practice globally. Western countries including the United States and Britain have passed numerous laws in the field and have a large number of cases derived from judicial practices.
