Increasingly actively defending its own interests and using a more self-confident, offensive “wolf warrior diplomacy”, China is currently in the focus of attention of major global actors. It is time for Kyiv to think how to develop relations with China in particular and Asian countries in general.

According to Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, the Asian region should become one of the important directions of Ukraine’s foreign policy. Ukraine’s development of an Asian strategy has aroused interest not only among our partners in Asia but also among partners in the EU and NATO.

Keeping in mind that European and Euro-Atlantic integration remains the key priority of Ukraine’s foreign policy, with the Asian strategy seen as a complementary direction, the New Europe Center has analyzed the main risks of Ukraine’s deepening cooperation with China for its relations with the EU, the US and NATO.
