China-U.S. High-Level Talks and Impacts of Abe's Assassination
The Hub with Wang Guan reads out Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi's meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Bali. Susan A. Thornton, senior fellow and visiting lecturer at the Paul Tsai China Center, Yale Law School and Da Wei, director at the Center for International Security and Strategy in Beijing, both feel it has created an encouraging environment for a conversation between the presidents of the two states. However, there's still a huge risk factor in the bilateral relationship – #Taiwan. China feels the U.S. is not abiding by the "one China" principle, while the Biden administration thinks it's doing its best. It can make its officials toe the line, but it's beyond its power to "discipline" the "raucous" voices in "American democratic society". Though trust can be built, it's not an easy task in the current environment.
Prof. Zha Daojiong at Peking University's School of International Studies assesses the legacy of former Japanese PM Shinzo Abe and the impact of his assassination. #Abe will be remembered as the father of the Quad security alliance and his fingerprints will remain on the policies of Japan's ruling policy. He could not push through the constitutional amendment he had sought to militarize #Japan but Japan's security policy has already changed, irrespective of whether the constitution is amended or not.
