Summary

A. Larin. Cooperation Across the Taiwan Strait: Achievements, Problems and Prospects

With the accession to power of the KMT in Taiwan, the relationship of the island with the mainland have entered a new phase that characterized by qualitative deepening of economic integration, the expansion of contacts and significant improvement in the overall political atmosphere. The basis for progress lays in recognition by the parties of "1992 Consensus." They discussed the idea of a peace agreement, but the obstacle here is the ambiguous attitude to it of Taiwan and, probably, the Chinese leadership. The U.S. is not interested in Taiwan’s moving to "independence", although not refuses to sell military hardware to the island. Generally, the peaceful development of relations between two sides of the Taiwan strait is running with high degree of stability.

V.   Samartsev. National Power with Chinese Characteristics

Modern computer strategies are quite realistic in simulating conditions of coexistence for different civilizations.

Overindulgence in pursuing one direction of development or tense relations with some neighboring countries result in waste of resources, growth of confrontation and inevitable collapse. On the contrary, by balancing various politics one can expand its zone of influence and claim for a superpower status.
