Russia-China Relations: Recent Trajectory, Implications, and Outlook

On March 23, 2017, NBR in partnership with the Sigur Center for Asian Studies hosted a public seminar on the recent trajectory, outlook, and implications of Russia-China cooperation.

The event featured a presentation by Robert Sutter (Elliott School of International Affairs) on the preliminary findings of an in-depth examination that NBR is conducting on the contemporary Russia-China relationship and its implications for U.S. interests. Immediately following this was a discussion of issues and recommendations by expert commentators on the implications of Russia-China relations for U.S. national security interests, U.S.-China relations, U.S.-Russia relations, and for Japan and Northeast Asia. The event concluded with a Q&A session, providing ample time for audience members to offer their insights and recommendations.
