The Russian Dimension in U.S.-China Relations

Event Series: "China's New Era" Seminar Series

A topic that does not receive as much attention as it should is the triangular dynamic between Beijing, Moscow, and Washington, D.C. United States relations with both China and Russia are contentious, but in strikingly different dimensions. In this seminar Dr. Peter Clement explored these dynamics, and assessed the great power triangle and where it may be headed.

The event was co-sponsored by the Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues and the Walsh School of Foreign Service Asian Studies Program.


Peter Clement is a visiting senior research scholar in the Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University, and former deputy assistant director for Europe and Eurasia, CIA.
