Relations between China and Russia have never been better. However, the solidity and future of their “global strategic partnership” is questionable. In spite common interests on the global scene, there is a lack of strategic trust and subjects of frustration are numerous, from trade to energy and military cooperation.
In this context, the Ukraine crisis led to a difficult debate in China between fascination for a “strong Russia”, as a possible model for China in Asia, and a growing uneasiness regarding Putin’s agenda for the future.
Valerie Niquet received her PhD in political science, MA in Chinese and BA in Japanese from the University of Paris. She heads the Asia department at FRS (Fondation pour la recherche strategique). She was formerly the Director of Asia Centre IFRI (Institut Francais des Relations Internationales) where she developed new research programs on China, India and Japan. Valerie Niquet is a member of the scientific committee of the Conseil superieur de la formation et de la recherche strategique (CSFRS).
She has published extensively on strategic issues, international relations and defence policies in Asia as well as on the evolutions of the Chinese political system. She is the translator of two major works of the Chinese military classics (the Art of war by Sun Zi and the Military Treaty by Sun Bin). Her latest publications include “Confu-talk: the Use of Confucian Concepts in Contemporary Chinese Foreign Policy”, in Anne-Marie Brady, China’s Thought Management, Routledge, 2011, Chine-Japon, l’affrontement, Paris, Perrin, 2006.
