Yes, it is possible for panda diplomacy to live on. Chinese President Xi Jinping recently made statements indicating that the United States may receive more giant pandas to serve as goodwill envoys between the two nations. China recently loaned two giant pandas, named Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. The loan, which was originally for 10 years, was recently extended for another five years. President Xi has suggested that other Chinese cities may also loan giant pandas to U.S. zoos, which would be a major step forward in continuing panda diplomacy.
