Trump is being urged to combat the charge that his administration was not prepared to take on the pandemic In reviewing the excruciating pressure imposed on U.S. President Donald Trump to drop his efforts to achieve a collaborative relationship with China's President Xi Jinping, it is useful to review the strategy outlined by former United Kingdom Ambassador to Washington, Sir Kim Darroch, to manipulate him to adopt British policy initiatives. The {Daily Mail} published on July 6, 2019 leaked diplomatic cables sent by Darroch to Britain's National Security Adviser Sir Mark Sedwill,...

The UN Security Council Shirks the Test for Coronavirus

... Johnson. Having threatened to close the border between the United Kingdom and France (and between the United Kingdom and the European Union), Paris forced London to keep in step with other European countries. The European Union had thus twisted the United Kingdom’s arm, forcing it to play by European rules. But who will twist Russia’s, or China’s, or the United States’ arm? And this is why the UN Security Council is keeping quiet, and it does not look like this will change any time soon. Even if the Security Council does manage to come up with a resolution, it will probably be very ...

Ian Bond: EU Is Always Open to Dialogue with Russia, but It All Depends on the Terms

... and on some of the activities of Russian intelligence services in the West. Those are difficult issues, but there are also a number of areas where we still have things we can and have to talk about. Recently Bloomberg reported that the US is weighing China’s currency pact as a part of the partial trade deal. How does the EU regard that? There is a paradox in the American approach that, on one hand, the US is in favor of free markets, but on the other hand, they're not in favor of the Yuan moving ...

A New Era of Arms Control: Myths, Realities and Options

... declined at all. If the U.S. and Russian governments or independent experts have data that suggests otherwise, that would be an interesting subject for discussion. As for deployed strategic nuclear weapons covered by the New START, the U.K., France and China have a total of 500 such weapons, 7 while each of the two superpowers possesses over 2,000. 8 Other states have only intermediate-range and tactical weapons (i.e. those with a flight range of less than 5,500 km).

Contradictions of the “Golden Era” in UK–China Relations

... threats China may pose to the United Kingdom. Political Dilemmas The National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review adopted in 2015 mentions both China and India in economic contexts. The objective of the government is to make China the United Kingdom’s second-biggest export destination in the next decade. Unlike Moscow, Beijing is not said to challenge the international order.

Possible International “Package Solution” Formats on the Balkans Issue

... Russia’s Presence in Southeast Europe and Russia’s New Strategy The United States is pushing forward only those decisions that assure their influence on the pan-European processes as well as strengthen their positions in the global confrontation. Russia, China, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, which are accumulating more and more influence in the region, taken separately, are not so powerful. In any case, they are simply not able to offer any alternative to the “European choice”. However, they have never ...

Russia in the Balkans

... Balkans a part of the Euro-Atlantic region is not entirely correct, since over recent years, the economic, political and ideological influence of other important actors in the region, including new ones, has grown significantly. These actors are primarily China, but also Turkey and several Middle Eastern states. The presence of many actors with diverging interests in the fragmented post-conflict Balkan space demonstrates that the situation in the region would be more properly assessed not as part of the ...

In addition, China, France and the United Kingdom could set up an independent expert commission to look into the “violations” committed by the United States and Russia, help the countries better understand each other and propose solutions. Europe and China are particularly interested ...

Britain Seeks Closer Links with China in a Post-Brexit World

... interests” which seem to have triumphed in Sino-British relations after a minor hiccup which followed the Brexit referendum in the summer. Things came to a head in September, 2016 when Jim O'Neill, the UK Treasury minister leading trade talks with China, suddenly resigned from the government in a row over relations with Beijing. Lord O'Neill is the former Goldman Sachs chief economist famous for coining the term BRICS to describe the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South ...

China–UK Investment Cooperation: Life After Brexit

... companies and infrastructure, while finance and the real sector are being pushed back. What is more, Chinese companies are transitioning from the acquisition of minority stakes in various companies to a more active merger and acquisition policy. Despite China’s relevant transactions in the United Kingdom being smaller in monetary terms, their number is growing rapidly (see Fig. 1). The money is mostly invested in real estate, mining, oil and gas, construction, transportation, retail and financing (see Fig. 2). Figure 1. Mergers and Acquisitions ...
