U.S.-China Relations After 9/11: Lasting Partnership or Passing Phase?

On the eve of the 30th Anniversary of Richard Nixon's historic visit to China, Professor Qingguo Jia, Peking School of International Studies, reflects on the state of U.S.-China relations. He argues that the terrorist attacks last September have brought the two nations closer together, and that in the long term, their relationship will only improve. "Sixty years ago our countries fought shoulder to shoulder against fascism, despite great ideological differences," Jia says. "Today the gap is narrowing, and there is no reason not to cooperate."
