Op-Ed on Secretary of State Kerry's China Challenge by CSPC Trustee Nicholas Burns Published in Boston Globe

In an op-ed in the Boston Globe published January 31, 2013, CSPC Trustee Nicholas Burns argues that China poses one of the greatest challenges to the Obama Administration in its second term, and especially to the new Secretary of State John Kerry.

Burns writes, "Future biographers of John Kerry might well judge that American security in the 21st century is inseparable from the balance of power in Asia. We will continue to disagree with Chinese leaders on important issues — human rights, intellectual property, cyber threats, and democracy. But, there is no debate that, for the Obama-Kerry team, China must be the great priority for the four years ahead."
