"Where America slams a door, China immediately appears to knock in" - goes the popular saying and we see it becoming a reality in 21st-century geopolitical trends. Will the US be able to prevent a China-Russia alliance at the dawn of the new Cold War? How can we understand better Chinese foreign policy? Is the Belt and Road initiative actually a framework for expanding China's global influence or more of a "domestic" project? Guest: Gergely Salát, China expert, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Hosts: Attila Demkó, Head of the Center for Geopolitics, MCC; Péter Heltai, Editor of Corvinak.hu, MCC.
