Year of China Event - Ambassador Pickering Discusses China, Russia, and the U.S.: The New Alliance?
February 19, 2003

U.S. relations with China and Russia have gone through highs and lows over the years, but have steadily improved following September 11. Will these good relations continue, especially as the U.S. faces conflicts with Iraq and North Korea? Come hear Ambassador Thomas Pickering, senior vice president of international relations at The Boeing Company, on Wednesday, February 19, as he addresses these and other issues.

Ambassador Pickering is particularly qualified to speak on this topic, having held the personal rank of Career Ambassador, the highest in the U.S. Foreign Service. In a diplomatic career spanning five decades, he served as U.S. ambassador to the Russian Federation, India, Israel, El Salvador, Nigeria and Jordan, as well as to the United Nations. Before assuming his current position at Boeing, he was U.S. secretary of state for political affairs.
