Russia and China: Entanglements and Points of Tension
This event will examine Russia’s complex relations with China. Last year’s Gazprom-CNPC gas deal and recent high profile meetings between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping have created the impression that the ties between Russia and China are strengthening.
However, the uneven nature of the bilateral relationship is likely to create tension in the future. This event will focus on their economic and political links, as well as their shared and diverging interests in Central Asia.
In each session, the speakers will offer brief initial remarks, followed by an hour for questions and discussion.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
