This article examines policy issues dealing with military-security relations between China and the U.S. The two countries have no formal military relationship and there are no clear links or negotiations between the two countries on bilateral military problems or arms control. Because current military-security relationship between the U.S. and China is hard to define, there is a need to analyze some of the delicate and sensitive issues to determine future U.S. foreign policy. Whether or not the U.S. should develop a direct military links and cooperate overtly with the Chinese on matters involving military security is one of the question that the U.S. should carefully consider.
