In the tables in this report, the EastWest Institute’s Asia-Pacific team lays out the differing strategic perceptions of the United States and China with respect to some of the most topical and challenging issues on the U.S.-China agenda today (with a focus mostly on Northeast Asian security issues ) including: the U.S. rebalance to the Asia-Pacific2 ; the stability of the Korean peninsula and, specifically, the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system to South Korea; U.S. reconnaissance operations in the Asia-Pacific region; territorial disputes in the East and South China Seas; and cross-Strait relations. We also address the more cross-cutting issue of cybersecurity. By surfacing and addressing head-on the relevant diverging strategic perceptions, we seek to foster U.S.-China dialogue that is more open, constructive, fruitful and conducive to a bilateral relationship of greater strategic honesty and mutual trust.
