USA /China Relations

China’s Responses to the Gaza War and its Regional Fallout

A U.S.-China Update presented by The Committee for a Sane U.S.-China Policy and co-sponsored by the Campaign for Peace, Disarmament, and Common Security.

A Panel Discussion with Dr Wang Danning & Prof Zhiqun Zhu

The deadly Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel and the subsequent Israeli devastation of Gaza and resulting humanitarian catastrophe have generated geopolitical repercussions throughout the Middle East and beyond. In addition to regional actors like Iran, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, all of the major powers, including China, Russia, and the United States, have sought to realign their foreign policies to maximize positive outcomes from the Israel/Gaza disaster and minimize negative consequences.

We have heard a lot about the U.S. response to the Gaza disaster, but far less about that of these other countries, especially China. But while China is not a major player in the Israel/Hamas dispute, it has been increasingly active in the Middle East and has sought to play an active role in resolving the conflict.

What, then, is China’s stance on the Israel/Hamas dispute, and how does Beijing propose to resolve it?

To address these questions, the Committee for a Sane U.S.-China Policy will bring together a number of informed scholars for a webinar on the topic on Thursday, April 11, at 8 PM EDT. We are sure you will find the discussion informative and stimulating!
