The recent summit between U.S. President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping, while a rare constructive development in an increasingly complex and competitive relationship, did not produce any major breakthroughs to address the worrying trajectory between the two major world players. On the frontlines of the tension are the countries in the Indo-Pacific, who must try to balance security and economic interests as an increasingly confident China carves out a more powerful role in the international arena. How are China’s Asian neighbors such as Korea situating themselves in face of further economic conflict and military posturing? Join the World Affairs Council on December 8th, 2021 at 12:00 PST for a conversation with Amb. Mark Lippert, former Ambassador to Korea, for a conversation about security in the region and how it affects the surrounding countries.
