The Nature of Formal and Informal Sino-Russian Political Networks: The Case of Syria

Salwa Farrag


The world is governed economically and politically by supra-national conglomerates, in which both Russia and China are players seeking leadership and supporting the multi-polar system. This paper seeks to understand and analyze the geopolitical importance of the Arab region, with emphasis on Syria, for both Russia and China. It is further interested in the likelihood of a unified Syrian state in light of new concepts such as supportive sovereignty and security co-operation based on a balance of interests between allies instead of strategic security based on the balance of powers.

Keywords:Sino-Russian political networks, The Syrian crisis, Supportive sovereignty, Syrian Geopolitical importance.
