Two sessions: Chinese foreign policy

During China’s Two Sessions, Foreign Minister Wang Yi laid out China’s stance on a range of tricky international issues. He reiterated the country’s stance on the South China Sea, arguing that accusations that China is “militarizing” the region might more accurately be pinned on other countries like the US. Will China be ready if it is faced with an “unexpected encounter” in the South China Sea? On the denuclearization of the DPRK, Wang said that China supports the continuation of the six-party talks and suggested that their focus expand to include a potential peace agreement. Is that likely? And how should China handle South Korea, which stands somewhere in between China and the US? Join us for an in-depth discussion on Chinese diplomacy with Yuan Peng, vice president of China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, Yang Xiyu, senior fellow at China Institute of International Studies, and Rick Dunham, co-director of the Global Business Journalism program at Tsinghua University.
