The combination of the U.S. pivot to Asia and the reemergence of nationalism in Japan has created tension in the Asia-Pacific region. As China continues to feel threatened by the close relations between the U.S. and Japan, Wu Zurong points out that irritants to Sino-U.S. relations will hurt the Asia-Pacific as a whole.

Now, the United States faces a strategic decision to either embrace peace and development or continue to seek hegemonic superiority. As Wang Yusheng points out, embracing this new opportunity is key for stability in the international community.
