Russia and China’s ominous new friendship

Russia and China’s ominous new friendship

David Andelman writes that natural gas has begun flowing this week along the new “Power of Siberia” pipeline linking Russia and China, a testimony to the increasingly close and, for the United States, quite dangerous ties between the two countries.

The gas pipeline project itself brings together America’s two leading adversaries, who at one time were utterly at odds with each other, but who have been driven closer than at any time in their history by domestic and international circumstances. In a joint teleconference inaugurating the project, Russian President Vladimir Putin characterized it as a “genuinely historical event….for us, for Russia and China.” The pipeline, he continued, “takes Russia-China energy cooperation to a whole new level and brings us closer to achieving the goal set together with Chinese President Xi Jinping of extending bilateral trade turnover to $200 billion in 2024.”

Author of “A Shattered Peace: Versailles 1919 and the Price We Pay Today,” he was formerly a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and CBS News.
