Yukon Huang: Who can break the US-China Impasse? - 13th Dec

Paul Haenle: US and China broach sensitive topic of N Korea regime collapse - 22nd Dec

In the Bush administration we tried to have those conversations and the Chinese were very reluctant to engage. They didn’t want to be perceived as doing secret planning with the United States about the collapse of the regime because they thought it would make the situation worse. But I think they’re probably more willing to have those conversations today.

Paul Haenle: The North Korean Nuclear Threat: The View From Beijing - 22nd Dec

While the United States and China agree on the ultimate objective of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula, persistent mistrust and differing priorities prevent the two countries from making significant progress. North Korean actions that undermine Chinese interests, rather than U.S. pressure, will have a greater impact in fundamentally shifting Beijing’s policy toward Pyongyang.

Paul Haenle: US-North Korea tensions fuel fears on Chinese border - 11th Dec

China’s policy towards North Korea is primarily driven by fears of the chaos that could erupt along the border, rather than pressure from the Trump administration to help contain Mr. Kim’s nuclear development programme. The Chinese are concerned about the North Koreans for their own reasons. I see the Chinese at their wits’ end.

Patrick Chovanec: What American Corporations Really Think About China - 8th Dec

What Jack Ma says is correct – within limits. He’s correct that you go to a country and have to play by their rules and government regulations. You have a choice as a business to gauge whether the opportunity is really worth it. Some will decide that it is and others will stay away.
