Military-to-military dialogue between the United States and China has resumed once again after a series of disagreements in 2010 that demonstrated the volatile, “start-stop-restart” nature of the U.S.-China military relationship. Ahead lay the continued challenges of the North Korean nuclear program, international sanctions on Iran, and freedom of navigation in the South China Seas that stress the need for sustained and reliable dialogue that can bring the U.S.-China military relationship to levels consistent with other areas of U.S.-China relations.

Please join the Center for American Progress as it hosts distinguished guest Admiral Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who will offer his perspectives on the future of U.S.-China military relations. The event will be moderated by Rudy deLeon, Senior Vice President of the Center for American Progress, and David Finkelstein, vice president and director of China studies at CNA.
