Recently, US foreign policy experts have argued that China’s military power presents major implications for the US and Japan’s ability to maintain regional stability. However, Stephen Harner argues the US and Japan must recognize the changing geopolitical landscape in the Asia-Pacific and recognize the dangers of the current security order.

In a speech delivered at the Tokyo Institute of Technology on April 15th, US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke of America’s “Pacific Dream”. However, a looming question remained. What does the “Pacific Dream” of the US mean for Xi Jinping's China dream?

The dawn of the global financial crisis has reshaped the global landscape. 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.

Zhou Bo writes that the success of General Martin Dempsey’s recent visit to China signals that both sides have thus far agreed to disagree, and that strategic mutual trust is deepening US-China military relations.

In his just ended trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stressed his desire to work with Beijing to dampen regional tensions. Clearly, the United States considers China’s treatment of North Korea and Iran an important test of China’s rise.

The close consultation on the Korean issue in Secretary Kerry's first trip was important, writes Fan Jishe, but far from enough. To establish a strategically stable bilateral relationship, Secretary Kerry still has a long way to go, and his mission is not accomplished, yet.

The most notable manifestation of China’s peaceful development in the world will be the change of power structure, writes Ding Gang in People’s Daily. A transfer of power, as well as the redistribution of responsibilities and rights, will be in the interest of all countries.

Whether Secretary Kerry will clarify America’s position on the “pivot to Asia” is unclear, writes Dean Cheng. Kerry’s first visit to Asia could have provided much-needed clarification on this vital issue; instead, it likely only further muddies the waters.

As China prepares for Secretary Kerry's visit, Qian Liwei writes that it will take time and patience to convince China that it isn't the target of the U.S. rebalancing strategy in the Asia-Pacific region.
