China and Russia: Why China and the United States are on the brink
The two nations are at the heart of a geopolitical tug-of-war between two nuclear powers in Asia.
And with a new U.S.-China defense pact being negotiated, there’s also growing anxiety in Washington that the United State is going to be on the losing side in a future war between Beijing and Washington.

In this exclusive excerpt, we talk to a former U.N. peacekeeper in Beijing, an expert on Chinese-Russian relations, and a former diplomat in Washington.
In the first part of a two-part interview, we discuss the history of the two countries, their military relationship, and how the United Kingdom is trying to forge a relationship with Russia.
