Chinese-Iranian mutual strategic perceptions.

Ehteshami, Anoushiravan and Horesh, Niv and Xu, Ruike (2018) 'Chinese-Iranian mutual strategic perceptions.', China journal., 79 . pp. 1-20.


This article analyzes Sino-Iranian relations and mutual strategic perceptions, highlighting several types of tension in Sino-Iranian ties alongside areas of deeper cooperation. We examine in particular the policy debates about China between conservatives and reformists within Iran, and we compare their views of China to the views of Iran held by Chinese commentators. To that end, we extensively survey both the official media and scholarly literature in Farsi and in Chinese, since each strand reveals different sentiments and is accorded a different degree of openness.
