Mandarin Muscle: China's Influence on Global Politics

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

China pits the U.S. against North Korea in a nuclear standoff, takes Iran's side to keep its nuclear-weapons program away from the United Nations, forms a new intelligence agreement between Beijing and Manila, and confronts Taiwan to accept unification. Is China seeking to undermine U.S. influence in the world? Or is this simply the emergence of a new power on the world scene?

As the United States continues to focus on Iraq and Afghanistan, how will China's increasing international influence affect the security of the United States, the global war on terrorism and the overall future of U.S. relations in Asia? Please join our experts as we examine China's pursuit to pressure global politics.
