Cooperation between China and Russia on Security Issues: a Regional Aspect
Abstract.The article explores Russian-Chinese cooperation on regional and international security issues within the SCO framework. The new global challenges that emerged from the profound transformations of the international system after the end of the Cold War demanded that China and Russia develop new approaches to regional security, which led to the establishment of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization that currently is an effective mechanism for coordination of positions on a wide range of international issues. And China-Russia relations of strategic cooperation remain the main driving force of the said organization. The methodological basis of this article is a system-structural method. The system method makes it possibleto study the structure of the system as a set of interrelated elements; the structural method makes it possible to identify stable connections inside the system. The merging of these two methods within the framework of exploration of the PRC and RF cooperation in the SCO allowed the author to assess the role and place they occupy within the system (organization); to study their goals and policies in the international arena; to identify a common ground that enabled them to cooperate productively in the SCO; and also to analyze interaction of the SCO with other actors of the international system. The scientific novelty of the study is determined by a comprehensive analysis of the main interests and problems of Russian-Chinese cooperation within the SCO framework. The author has studied a wide range of sources in Chinese and Russian, on their basis the author makes conclusions on trends in the development of the relations between the PRC and the RF in the context of changes in the international system.
