The panda cub Beibei, born at Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington D.C., will start receiving visitors next week Saturday. The Chinese ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, was invited to make an early visit, to check out if Beibei is ready to become China's latest Panda Ambassador.

"These two pandas were born and raised here. People in Washington DC and from other places across the US like them very much. Pandas bring people from China and the US closer. They also promote the joint efforts of China and the US to protect wild animals. They are actually 'Panda Ambassadors'," he said.
