Speaking on the BBC’s Newshour, Carnegie Moscow Center’s Dmitri Trenin discussed the growing Russia-China relationship with BBC China editor Carrie Gracie. He was joined by Andrew Leung, an independent China specialist based in Hong Kong, and Mark MacKinnon, former Beijing and Moscow bureau chief for Canada’s Globe and Mail, now based in London.

Trenin assessed the rising relationship between China and Russia as based both on a common resentment toward Washington’s world dominance as well as on shared interests in economy, investments, infrastructure, and science.

Moreover, he argued, a new Eurasia is emerging now, with China as a dynamic center of it, and the current China-led projects in Eurasia have the potential to bring about the greatest changes in this region since the days of Genghis Khan.
