24 February 2017
The prospect of warming ties between Moscow and Washington under President Trump is generating speculation that the new U.S. administration's foreign policy could alter triangular power dynamics. Andrew Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Alexander Gabuev, a senior associate and the chair of the Russia in the Asia-Pacific Program at the Carnegie Moscow Center, and Paul Stronski, a senior fellow in Carnegie’s Russia and Eurasia Program, discussed these issues in a panel moderated by Charles Clover, Beijing correspondent for the “Financial Times” (previously in Moscow).
The event generated a great interest among the local China-watching community, including the diplomatic corps. Almost a hundred guests braved the cold and snow to listen to the experts and participate in the discussion that followed their interventions.
