Washington, D.C. — Amid an increasingly turbulent and rapidly shifting strategic environment in the Middle East, the Center for American Progress, the China-United States Exchange Foundation, and the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies will release a report and host a public panel to examine the intersection of U.S. and Chinese interests and policies in the region. Can China and the United States partner to promote peace and stability in the Middle East in support of shared interests?

Since early 2014, the three organizations have led a track II dialogue exploring issues such as sustainable security in Egypt; cooperation to counter terrorism and violent extremism; opportunities for connectivity through the U.S. New Silk Road and Chinese Belt and Road initiatives; and securing the flow of energy resources from the Middle East to the rest of the world. The distinguished panel of researchers will discuss their findings and the opportunities and challenges for U.S.-China cooperation in the region.
