Steinberg op-ed in NAR urges more US-China cooperation amid COVID-19
James Steinberg, University Professor of Social Science, International Affairs and Law and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, urges the United States and China to work together in his op-ed for Nikkei Asian Review
“China and U.S. must
cooperate to lead world out of coronavirus danger
.” Steinberg writes, “China and the U.S. together bear a special responsibility to pick up this call and lead the global response, just as they did in 2008-09. But to do so will require a fundamental rethinking about the direction of their relationship… It will be hard to sustain meaningful cooperation for this and other looming crises if each side treats the other as a rival and potential enemy competing for power and influence everywhere."
