INTERVIEW: Nye Sees Japan's Role in U.S.-China "Cooperative Rivalry"

INTERVIEW: Nye Sees Japan's Role in U.S.-China "Cooperative Rivalry"

   Washington, Jan. 9 (Jiji Press)--Japan could play a "very important role" in balancing the "cooperative rivalry" between the United States and China, renowned U.S. scholar Joseph Nye said in a recent interview with Jiji Press.
   The Harvard University professor expressed his skepticism about describing the current broad-ranging tensions between the world's two largest economies, including in the technology, trade and security fields, as a new Cold War.
   "The United States and China today have obviously a great deal of trade, and we also see...300,000-plus Chinese students in the United States, as well as several million Chinese tourists," Nye said.
   In contrast, "there was almost no trade between the United States and the Soviet Union, and almost no social contact," he noted.
   No country can alone solve such problems as climate change, pandemics and international financial issues, said Nye, who served as assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs in the administration of U.S. President Bill Clinton in 1994-1995.
