What’s Next for the China-Russia Relationship?
After decades of hostility, the China-Russia relationship has entered a new epoch, one formally described as a “comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for a new era.” Chinese leader Xi Jinping now calls Russian President Vladimir Putin one of his “closest friends and a great colleague,” and at a historic summit in Beijing on February 4th, Putin declared that the bilateral relationship had “acquired a truly unprecedented nature.” With a growing number of shared aspirations for altering the regional security environment and reforming global governance, Moscow and Beijing find themselves in growing geopolitical alignment. But where does the relationship go from here? And what does this mean for the United States?
Please join the CSIS China Power Project and Freeman Chair in China Studies on February 23rd for an in-depth discussion on the future of the bilateral relationship with Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Senior Fellow and Director of the Transatlantic Security Program at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), Manoj Kewalramani, Chair of the Indo-Pacific Research Programme at the Takshashila Institution, Amb. Michael McFaul, Ken Olivier and Angela Nomellini Professor in International Studies in the Department of Political Science at Stanford University, Evan S. Medeiros, Penner Family Chair in Asia Studies and Distinguished Fellow in U.S.-China Studies at Georgetown University, and Angela Stent, Director Emerita of the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies at Georgetown University.
