Is China Welcome in the Arctic?
On May 15, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with his Russian
counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, and the foreign ministers of the six other Arctic
states and decide whether China is welcome in the region.
The Arctic states have tried to agree on China's proper role in the Arctic for more than four years. They have made no progress so far and there is no certain outcome for the upcoming summit in Kiruna, a mining town in northern Sweden.
