Is the United States Driving China and Russia Together?
October 22, 2018
10:00 AM—12:00 PM HKT (UTC + 8)
Beijing
The U.S.-Russia bilateral relationship is facing unprecedented strains. At the same time, the U.S.-China relationship is growing increasingly contentious over what the Trump administration views as the lack of reciprocity across many areas, including trade, investment, media, education, and culture. In parallel, ties between Russia and China are deepening—China participated in the Vostok 2018 war games and President Xi Jinping met with President Vladimir Putin at the Eastern Economic Forum. How will China’s strained relations with the United States and stronger cooperation with Russia impact how it positions itself in the global order? How should the United States react and respond to warming China-Russia ties? Are there U.S. policies that are working to push Russia and China closer together?  
Carnegie–Tsinghua Director Paul Haenle moderated a discussion between scholars from the Carnegie Moscow Center and Fudan University that examined the Trump administration’s Russia and China policies and how they could have an impact on the relationship between the two major U.S. geopolitical competitors.
This panel was the first of the Carnegie Global Dialogue Series 2018-2019 and was cosponsored by Fudan University’s Center for Russia and Central Asia Studies.
This event was off the record.
