China starts to pull its weight at the UN

In an op-ed in The International Herald Tribune, Dr Michael Fullilove of the Lowy Institute argues that China's assertiveness at the UN is following the same growth curve as its economic performance and military capacity. It has stepped up in New York just as the United States has stepped down. Now China faces a new test: to internalise the responsibilities of a global power. Dr Fullilove's article is adapted from an essay in the September/October edition of The National Interest.The International Herald Tribune, 24 August 2006Michael Fullilove
