Russia’s Pivot to Asia

RTHK Radio 3, June 7, 2014

Amid the tensions in Ukraine and Western sanctions on Russia, Moscow and Beijing recently signed a $400 billion gas supply agreement. Is this Russia’s version of a pivot to Asia? Did Beijing or Moscow get the better end of the bargain? And what are the implications for global energy security?

The following two guests join us to discuss.

  • Geoff Dyer, former China bureau chief of the Financial Times and author of The Contest of the Century: The New Era of Competition with China—and How America Can Win
  • Ed Chow, Senior Fellow of the Energy and National Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies
