How the West is wholly missing China’s geopolitical focus

China is capitalizing on vast space for influence to its west in Central Asia - not in Asia-Pacific as perceived by the West.


Case in point: China’s choice of Turkmen, Kazakh and Uzbek gas imports, over importing from Russia, has forced Russia’s Gazprom to reassess its regional strategy. While Gazprom’s price negotiations with Moscow have slogged on over the last five years…five years, the China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC) has cobbled together and upgraded largely existing transportation infrastructure to create the China-Central Asia gas pipeline. The resulting shift in the region’s energy geopolitics reflects China’s rise.
