While continuing to push for centuries Putin and XI Jinping, the United States would risk provoking the emergence of a military Alliance of the capital of Russia and Beijing, or at least to help them close cooperation, writes.
"If Washington continues to go too far in regard to oil prices, Ukraine and NATO expansion, and If the US too much to change the balance of forces in the Pacific against China, Russia and China have the opportunity really to make steps towards a formal Alliance, although maybe not in the form in which they would like," writes Japanese magazine.
now, from the perspective of the publication, to characterize the relations of Russia and China as an Alliance or partnership is still early.
The Diplomat stressed that the centuries Putin and Jinping lot in common - both are strong leaders, seeking to return to its former greatness. However, from the perspective of the media, it does not mean that they would be easy to " stick together." Two tigers cannot live on a mountain " - quoted The Diplomat Chinese proverb.
Economic relations are a key factor in Russian-Chinese relations, But Russia, emphasizes The Diplomat, until can't refuse Europe as an important market, and China, for its part, could not "sacrifice" of his trading partner of the US.
anyway, If the West will represent a serious danger for these two countries, this may lead them to economic and military rapprochement, says The Diplomat.
In response to this, the magazine continues, the U.S. must change its policy towards these countries: for example, cease to observe the decision of the Ukrainian fall in Russia's isolation and providing her pressure through sanctions and to review their approach to change the balance of power in Asia.
