The actions of the President of the Russian Federation in the Syrian Arab Republic and the strengthening of Russian-Chinese relations significantly increase the need to understand the trajectory of development of relations of Moscow and Beijing, as this eventually enhances the probability of the cast to create a strong Eurasian geopolitical colossus, the American Professor Lyle Goldstein. About this in his article for The National Interest.
In the past few years, analysts are skeptical about the possibility of building strong relations between Russia and China, But today it is necessary to reconsider this approach, according to the Creator of the article.
He claims that since he started the rapprochement of positions of Russia and China, their relationship has grown and have the opportunity to turn into a " Eurasian colossus ", which is a long time intimidated " guru of geopolitics ".
"Signs of a growing partnership between Russia and China is quite clearly visible," said Goldstein, Recalling the mutual visits of the presidents of pairs of countries for the Victory parade that emphasizes the " shared history of suffering from catastrophic losses in a great fire of the Second world war ".
in addition, the Professor writes, the Western allies after the development of the Ukrainian fall begin to fear that relations between Moscow and Beijing sooner or later have the ability to lead to a military-political Union.
"looking at Putin's strategy in the Syrian Arab Republic, most Chinese employees of the foreign Ministry adhere to the classic Chinese stratagem" to be on the top of the mountain and watch the tigers fight ". However, Western analysts are excessive scepticism concerning the development of Russian-Chinese relations. History shows many examples of very high level of cooperation between Moscow and Beijing. A double combination of "rebalancing" in tandem with the fact that the West is still developing a strategic response to the Ukraine crisis, may be enough to strengthen the geopolitical importance of the Eurasian counterweight " - concludes the Creator.
