Is China the New Middle East Power Broker?

Hosted By: American Jewish Committee (AJC)

On March 10, regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran announced their agreement to resume diplomatic relations. The biggest surprise was who brokered the deal: China. Beijing’s role in leading negotiations has dramatically elevated its status in the Middle East. China has long been a major economic partner for the Gulf states; it is now also a proven diplomatic mediator. What does China’s growing influence mean for the region, especially for Israel? What does it signify for the United States? Does the deal strengthen or weaken the chance of Israel’s diplomatic normalization with Saudi Arabia? Long-time China experts Mercy Kuo, Executive Vice President of Pamir Consulting, and Carice Witte, Executive Director of Sino-Israel Global Network and Academic Leadership will join Shira Loewenberg, Director of AJC Asia Pacific Institute in discussing this major development and its impact on the regional and global stage.
