    According to Foreign Relations of the United States, Volume XVIII, China 1973-1976, Secretary of State Kissinger made the following promise to PRC Prime Minister Chou En-lai during their conversation in Beijing on November 11, 1973.

    (美國國務卿季辛吉於1973年11月訪問北京,在11月11日的一次會談中,季辛吉對中國總理周恩來作出了以上的承諾。這個承諾等於是宣告了黑貓中隊的死刑,而更諷刺的是,中國應該比我國還早知道美方的這個決定。)

    This statement declared the demise of Project TACKLE. Ironically, China probably knew about the termination BEFORE Taiwan did.

    In June 1974, the Government of the Republic of China (GRC) officially agreed to the termination of Project TACKLE. In fact, no missions had been flown since May 24.

    (1974年6月,我國同意美方終止這項U-2合作偵察計畫。事實上,從當年5月24日之後,黑貓中隊就沒有再執行過一次偵察任務。7月23日,CIA派駐在桃園的指揮官向成員宣布了計畫終止的命令。29日,U-2飛返美國愛德華空軍基地,U-2在台灣的輝煌歷史正式畫下句點。)
