Image of Asia: Chinese panda in Malaysia

In this photo by Joshua Paul, Xing Xing, formerly known as Fu Wa, one of the two giant pandas from China, sniffs for food at the Giant Panda Conservation Center at the National Zoo in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The giant pandas, both 9 years old, are on a 10-year loan to Malaysia since May 21, 2014, to mark the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two nations. China has long used "panda diplomacy" to make friends and influence relations with other countries.
