The China-Pakistan axis plays a central role in Asia's geopolitics. It is interrelated to India's rise and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, as well as to the threat of nuclear terrorism and the continent's new map of mines, ports, and pipelines. Moreover, China is Pakistan's great economic hope and its most trusted military partner.
Please join us for an engaging discussion with Andrew Small on his latest book "The China-Pakistan Axis - Asia's New Geopolitics" and the ramifications of Sino-Pakistani ties for the West, for India, for Afghanistan, and for Asia as a whole. From China's involvement in South Asia's wars to the Obama administration's efforts to secure Chinese cooperation in stabilizing the region, Andrew's book traces the dilemmas Beijing increasingly faces between pursuing its strategic rivalry with India and the United States, and the imperative to address a terrorist threat that has become one of the gravest dangers to China's internal stability.
