The first baby panda in 24 years has been born at the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo, Japan.
A baby panda, which has not been named yet, was born on Thursday in Japan's Ueno Zoo. The zoo had stopped allowing visitors to see the baby's mother, Shin Shin, on Saturday because they noticed she was getting nervous about noise and light.
Shin Shin and the baby's father, Ri Ri, were leased to the zoo from China last year for a million dollars.
Lui Weimin, a spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry, said, "The giant pandas are messengers of friendship. We hope that people-to-people sentiment and overall relations between China and Japan can be promoted because of the birth of the cub."
