What Does a Closer U.S.-Russia Relationship Mean for China? |  Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy

Event Details

China and Russia have established closer ties under the leadership of Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin, forging large-scale energy and economic ties, conducting joint naval exercises, and signing treaties to reaffirm their strategic partnership. While world leaders hoped the United States and Russia would focus on areas in which to cooperate in the post-Cold War era, more emphasis has been placed on competition. Rhetoric from U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration, though, has renewed discussions about a possible improvement of U.S.-Russia relations that has the potential to shift the great power dynamics.

This panel will focus on the future of China-Russia relations and opportunities for collaboration, such as their mutual opposition to the THAAD missile deployment in South Korea and Russia’s status as China’s top crude oil supplier. Panelists will give their insights into U.S. views of the China-Russia relationship, the evolving U.S.-China-Russia relations under President Trump, and China’s reactions to potential changes and challenges.

This panel is the second in the 2016-2017 Carnegie Global Dialogue Series.
