Abstract : The author examines U.S.-China security cooperation before Tiananmen Square; the strategic context in which it took place; and the strategic environment of U.S.-China relations at the present time. As a member of the U.N. Security Council and one of the five acknowledged nuclear powers, China's actions can influence a wide range of U.S. global interests. Continued U.S.-China security cooperation will contribute to stability in an important region of the world and help achieve U.S. global objectives. He concludes that, although the reasons which justified the program of security cooperation with China during the cold war are irrelevant today, security cooperation and military-to-military relations are highly desirable in the current strategic environment.
