Join the Foreign Affairs Congressional Staff Association (FACSA), The Jackson Foundation, and The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) for an informational briefing on Sino-Russian cooperation on North Korea policy. The discussion will focus on how Chinese and Russian shared values and interests nurture a system of adaptive coordination regarding the resolution of the North Korean nuclear crisis, and how this coordination impacts U.S. policy in the region.
American interests in Asia are being challenged in new and asymmetric ways by China and Russia’s cooperation on the nuclear issue. This relationship poses multilayered challenges to U.S. policy on the Korean peninsula, and in Asia more broadly, including the goal of denuclearization of the DPRK. Our expert panelists will provide a brief overview of the challenges posed by the Sino-Russian partnership, discuss how this partnership can be applied to U.S.-China and U.S.-Russia competition, and provide a look at what role Congress can play in responding to this new layer of Asia security policy.
