The Atlanta zoo will return its 4 pandas to China late this yr, the ability introduced Friday, within the newest chapter of a program usually labeled “panda diplomacy.”

The dad and mom and their twins have been the one big pandas within the United States since November, when the National Zoo in Washington returned three of the bears to China in a transfer that some noticed as an ominous signal of deteriorating relations between the U.S. and Chinese governments. China owns and leases all big pandas in U.S. zoos.
