China-U.S. Relationship: Time to Focus on the Larger Picture
Cui Liru describes a transforming international picture of national power relations, one that is moving toward a multipolar world of influence. In order to avoid the possibilities or true confrontation, China must more clearly realize what it wants to achieve in the world, and also needs to imagine what a peaceful coexistence with the U.S. would look like.
Highlights of Chinese Diplomacy in 2014
Chen Xiangyang presents a comprehensive overview of the successful highlights of Chinese diplomacy in 2014, focusing on: 1) Xi’s refreshing diplomatic strategies; 2) diplomatic progress with major countries; 3) periphery diplomacy’s steady progress in both crisis control and rights preservation; 4) proactive “home court diplomacy”; 5) economic diplomacy; and 6) its role as a “responsible major country” in dealing with global challenges.
A Good Beginning, But Only Halfway Done
The most vulnerable part in Sino-US relations is military relations. The recent MOU between the two militaries is a great effort from both sides to “develop a new model of military-to-military relations”.
New Normals in Sino-U.S. Relations
Chen Yonglong explains the six “normal” states of interaction that will define the China-U.S. relationship: in redefining shared global power; in how leaders conduct dialogue; in economics; in strategic contention of hegemony and ideology; in their efforts to control dispute; and finally in their cycles of balance and rebalance.
With Joint Efforts, Sino-US Relations Can Embark on a New Path
In the two and a half years since Beijing raised the concept of building a “new model of major-country relations,” the U.S. has made statements that it doesn’t completely subscribe. However, as Yu Sui explains, these concerns are out of fear of a unilateral U.S. concession to Chinese demands, rather than an understanding of the mutual benefits at stake.
Asian Reflections on Obama and Beyond
Chinese experts underestimate the strong drivers underpinning the U.S. pivot to Asia, which will likely continue despite the Democratic losses in the recent congressional elections and the retirement of the U.S. Defense Secretary. Indeed, President Obama’s Asian policies enjoy bipartisan support and remain a White House priority despite economic and other challenges.
U.S.-China Relations in 2015: Building New Momentum
After several years of drift and decline, the US-China relationship ended 2014 modestly improved. The central task going into a new year is to build on this new momentum to strengthen the foundation of the relationship, build strategic trust, and work in tandem (or in parallel) on global issues of mutual concern.
The Xi-Obama Summit – What Comes Next in U.S.-China Relations
What the Xi-Obama November agreements suggest is that the two leaders are able to communicate effectively on complex problems, negotiate in good faith, and reach mature understandings that serve the interests of both countries. Now, the question is, can that pattern be maintained in 2015 and beyond?
Four Points About “The Interview,” Hollywood, and U.S.-China Relations
There are important points, applicable also in U.S.-China relations, to be noted in the presumed North Korean hacking attack on Sony Pictures, precipitated by the latter’s film “The Interview,” which treats as a spoof a CIA conspiracy to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Another Source of Mistrust Needs to be Addressed
China and US should deepen their cooperation and coordination in helping other countries to find a more sustainable development model, thus showing the world that their ideological differences can be mutually complementary rather than only contradictory.
New Phase of China-US Relationship
Wu Jianmin relays his concluding remarks from the Second China-U.S. Policy Forum in Beijing on December 13th – 15th, reiterating the history of China’s opening up to the West, and more recent phases of China-U.S. cooperation. Wu believes the U.S. and China can identify convergent interests, and make the foundation of the China-U.S. relationship stronger and stronger.
Bridging Cultural Divides to Create Supportive Universities
Chinese students now make up 31% of the foreign students on American campuses, a trend that has financially boosted U.S. higher education. However, many Chinese students face structural and social difficulties, and school administrations have proven ineffective in responding. The improvement of Chinese student’s well-being requires increased interaction from all parties.
Taiwan’s Resurgent Assertiveness: A New Worry for Washington
Ted Carpenter argues that the contentious Taiwan issue has merely been slumbering during the presidency of Ma Ying-jeou, and it now shows signs of awakening as a part of Taiwan’s greater assertiveness toward Beijing – which also implicates the United States in their role as “protector.”
New Terror Threat Landscape Requires Closer Sino-US Cooperation
The global increase of terrorist threats urges China and US to cooperate on anti-terrorism measures and intelligence. The U.S. has verbally agreed to support China’s key anti-terrorist campaign: quelling the East Turkestan Islamist Movement (ETIM) in Xinjiang.
Is China Trying to Drive the U.S. Out of Asia?
Internal causes in China are the basis of changes and developments in Asia, while external causes, such as relations with the other parts of the world, are secondary, and become operative through internal causes in Asia. Through this logic, Wu Zurong argues that the U.S. should consider its own development path before concerning itself with lost influence in Asia.
