China’s pivot Westward amid Great-Power competition

Admiral Charles Richard, who heads the United States Strategic Command, sounded a relatively new alarm the other week. He warned that the entire structure of global stability, which rests on nuclear deterrence between the U.S. and Russia, could be undermined by the emergence of China as America’s peer. Of course, the view from Beijing is quite different - an economic powerhouse wishing to fulfil its potential by moving West, through its Road and Belt Initiative. Without judging which of these perspectives is more to the point, can there be a meeting of the minds on this issue?
