Carnegie’s Evan Feigenbaum appeared on CNBC to discuss foreign policy issues in the 2016 presidential election. Feigenbaum asserted that U.S.-China relations would be an important foreign policy issue in the 2016 election. He also said that President Xi Jinping’s visit to Washington in September would be an important litmus test for the U.S.-China relationship, adding that the real challenge for both sides moving forward would be to build a concrete track record of cooperation on a greater number of issues like cooperation on climate or a bilateral investment treaty. He concluded by contending that cyberattacks remain one of the most disruptive issues in the relationship.
