Serious border conflicts between Russia and China have since been resolved with mutual border agreements signed in the early 2000s. Since then, increasingly coordinated military exercises on land, sea, and in the air as well as increased trade agreements initiated by a perceived threat America seems to present to both nations has brought us to the current American/Russian foreign policy outcomes. Will this relationship further deteriorate to the advantage of China, or are there other paths to explore?
Dimitri Trenin will offer the Russian perspective regarding this growing alliance, the perceived American threat that drives it, and what options possibly hang in the balance for both America and Russia.
