The faculty of political sciences, University of Baghdad witnessed the discussion of MA thesis entitled “impact of the economic variable on U.S -Chinese relations” submitted by the student “Mohammed Ibrahim khammas” from the department of international studies under the supervision of associate Prof. Dr. Abbas Hashim Aziz. The researcher stated that the relations between United States and China and the impact of the economic variable on during the last two decades (since the end of ideological conflict) were very intertwined and complex and they are still subject to the transition to reach the stage of conformation, as in the case of international relations in the framework of the international context that did not reach to the stabilization phase which is considered as the most important bilateral relationship between these countries in post-cold war world, whether for them or for the international community as a whole. I is worth mentioned that the forms of cooperation or competition between them represents a unique pattern in current international form because of the status of China as a rising power that might become a dominant superpower, while the United States is a dominant superpower but it could lose her place for the benefit of China, so the nature of interrelationships between these two forces ranging from cooperation to the need for interdependence from the liberal perspective and as a competition for national interest considerations from a realistic perspective, as a result of this these relations might reach to a degree that transform tensions between the two states to some extent of conviction of some sides of the possibility of happening a new cold war. The committee approved this thesis and wished the student success and excellence in his academic and practical life.
