The Sino-Russian relationship will have important ramifications for the future of Eurasia if it proves more durable than the previous century’s Sino-Soviet entente. Richard Weitz will discuss how this alignment has developed in recent years. He will also analyse the main drivers of the Sino-Russian relationship – its sources, nuances and manifestations – and assess its consequences, especially in the security domain.
