    For Russia, Asia Is No Substitute for the West
    Akio Kawato October 16, 2014

    Facing Western sanctions, some Russian pundits are rushing to find an easy way out through increased cooperation with Asia. However, nothing can replace the West for Russia.

    East or West, Home Is Best
    Mikhail Krutikhin October 15, 2014

    Moscow’s most recent, failed attempt to cooperate with China on the Altai gas pipeline shows that its political ambitions are not compatible with elementary arithmetic.

    Hong Kong Turmoil: Unintended Consequences for Russian Companies
    Alexander Gabuev October 8, 2014

    For Russian business interests who use Hong Kong as a base for operations in mainland China or the Asia-Pacific region, or are listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx), prodemocracy demonstrations were bad news.

    Russia and the New South East Asia
    Akio Kawato September 9, 2014

    East Asia is coming back to a phase in which economic considerations dominate. In this milieu Russia may lose her place in East Asia, because it will be deprived of an opportunity to play China against the West.

    Switching Aims
    Mikhail Krutikhin September 2, 2014

    The only possible source of money for the Power of Siberia pipeline is no one else but China, and the terms of this assistance will be dictated from Beijing. The Kremlin’s inability to come to terms with the Western world does not come cheap.

    Sanctioned Russia: A New Testing Ground for Chinese Yuan
    Alexander Gabuev August 12, 2014

    As new rounds of Western sanctions seem more likely, some large Russian companies are moving their cash reserves away from Western banks and currencies. In the long run dependence on China’s money and its financial institutions may be a new reality for Russian leaders for decades.

    A Free-Hand for Japan’s “Self-Defense Forces” to Operate Abroad? The Meaning of the New Decision of the Japanese Government
    Akio Kawato July 4, 2014

    Japan’s new guidelines for overseas operation by the country’s Self-Defense Forces are not aimed at Russia. On the contrary, Japan’s pro-active policy serves the maintenance of balance of power in North-East Asia, which in its turn fits the interest of Russia.

    Europe Torn Apart in the Asian Century?
    Jan Techau July 1, 2014 中文

    Europe risks becoming an in-between territory, with the United States and Asia pulling it in opposite directions. Europeans must understand how dangerous that would be.

    Color Revolutions in Asia? Beijing and Moscow Are on the Same Side
    Dmitri Trenin June 20, 2014

    The Chinese do not have to listen to the Russians to see threats to their national sovereignty and domestic stability on the horizon. Both see Western support for democracy as a tool to contain them internationally and to weaken them from within.

    Japan-North Korea Rapprochement: Dare to Dream or Doomed to Fail?
    Junya Nishino, Scott Snyder, James L. Schoff October 22, 2014 Washington, DC

    North Korea agreed in May to reopen an investigation into the abductions of Japanese nationals in the 1970s and ‘80s in exchange for sanctions relief from Tokyo. Some thought this step could lead to a breakthrough in Japan-North Korea ties, but there has been little progress.

    Duyeon Kim, Sydney Seiler, Robert Gallucci, Victor Cha October 21, 2014 Washington, DC

    The End of Convergence?
    Uri Dadush, Vikram Nehru, Carl Dahlman October 15, 2014 Washington, DC

    Convergence, the narrowing of the income gap between poor and rich countries, is one of the great stories of our time. A recent report shows that convergence has slowed in recent years, and that productivity in developing countries is not rising rapidly enough in key sectors.

    Asian Poverty: The Untold Story
    Shang-Jin Wei, Vikram Nehru October 9, 2014 Washington, DC

    According to the World Bank’s standard poverty measure, one in five Asians live in extreme poverty. However, a recent Asian Development Bank (ADB) report, asserts that this standard measure does not capture the true extent of extreme poverty in the region.

    A recent IMF staff report on Japan finds some progress for so-called Abenomics, but says that progress is uneven and substantial medium-term risks remain. The success or failure of the policies have important implications for both Japan and the region.

    Admiral Greenert on the Asia-Pacific Rebalance
    Douglas H. Paal, Jonathan Greenert September 8, 2014 Washington, DC

    China’s Navy is embarking on “new historic missions” that reflect China’s interest in expanding its operational reach and global influence. From cooperative piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden, to China’s first participation in the Rim of the Pacific naval exercise, the U.S. and Chinese Navies are expanding the boundaries of their burgeoning relationship.

    China-Japan Relations: Evaluating the Possibility of Military Conflict
    Zhao Kejin, Zhao Hongwei September 1, 2014 Beijing

    Developments in Japan’s defense policy and military spending have reinforced Chinese concerns that Japan is pursuing a policy of containment. It is unclear if a stronger Japanese military would have a stabilizing role in the Asia Pacific, or if it would only heighten existing tensions.

    Dmitri Trenin October 13, 2014 China Daily

    Rather than “replacing” Europe with China in its foreign policy universe, Russia would be wise to develop its relations with Beijing closer to the level of the very thick ties which link it to its Western neighbors.
