Washington, Beijing, and Moscow hold dissimilar and sometimes opposing views on several security issues, including precision-guided conventional weapon systems, ballistic missile defense, and tactical nuclear weapons. Russia insists that deepening global arms control requires a more multilateral approach and both Moscow and Beijing remain wary of emerging U.S. conventional prompt global strike weapons. The conflict in Ukraine and the chill in U.S.-Russian relations have further complicated cooperation on security matters.
Richard Weitz will use Ukraine as a vantage point to describe the current dimensions of U.S.-China-Russia trilateral security relations and assess the potential for nuclear conflict and international cooperation. Afterward, Tong Zhao will moderate a discussion.
