Armenia and China—Case for a Special Partnership

| March 2012


This article will take stock of the Armenian-Chinese relations to discern whether Yerevan has been effective in its response to the ongoing rise of the Middle Kingdom as the two countries prepare to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations this April. The article will compare Armenia’s policy vis-à-vis China to that of Georgia and Azerbaijan and identify areas where Yerevan could be doing more to advance the bilateral relationship. The article will conclude with specific recommendations on how Armenia can transform the relationship with China into a special partnership that would increase both Armenia’s benefits from the rise of China and China’s stake in the peaceful development of Armenia.
