America In Realization [11.08.14]

International Relations – Foreign Policy – Diplomacy
US – China


“The success of Mr. Obama’s Asia policy hinges on several areas his aides say he will focus on next week: achieving the trade agreement known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP; crafting a fresh blueprint for U.S.-China relations; ensuring the democratic endurance of Myanmar; and funding an American military footprint in the region that differs from when Mr. Obama took office.

A new era of strengthened US – China relations is on the horizon.
I am sure both President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping both look forward to that future.

 

US – Russia

“Sergei Lavrov and John Kerry agree at talks in Beijing to exchange information about situation on Russia-Ukraine border.

Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov has welcomed US involvement in resolving the Ukraine crisis, saying it would be a “step in the right direction,” in comments that appear to reflect a toning down in bilateral tension that has been at its worst since the end of the Cold War.
Lavrov’s remarks came after a meeting in Beijing with John Kerry, his US counterpart, and precede high-level meetings scheduled to take place between President Vladimir Putin and world leaders at an Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) summit in China, and a Group of 20 summit in Australia, next week.”
