What a new US President Means for Relations with China, Russia and Korea
November 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The election of a new president presents us with an important question: will the Biden administration change policy when it comes to Russia, China and Korea? The former Vice President is just as committed to U.S. hegemony and to the “pivot to Asia”, the new military, economic, diplomatic and soft-power Cold War with China. Biden is also aiming to revitalize U.S.-European alliances aimed at Russia.
President-elect Biden may extend the New START Treaty with Russia and has signaled an openness to cutting some nuclear weapons, but Biden is hardly a nuclear abolitionist. The “modernization” of the US nuclear arsenal is threatening a new arms race with Russia and China. Will Biden recognize the dangers and change course?
International problems, like climate change and global pandemics, require cooperation between the US, Russia, and China. This cooperation can’t take place from the precipice of war. Join us for a conversation about the prospects for peace.
