On April 28, Forward Defense nonresident senior fellow Nicholas Eftimiades was quoted in Nikkei Asia in an article about suspected Chinese spies in Germany and the UK. Eftimiades was quoted as saying, “They are attempting to drive a wedge between Europe and the United States, implementing a divide-and-conquer strategy.” He was also quoted warning about a  “possibility of retaliation — even arbitrary arrests of Europeans in China.”

Forward Defense, housed within the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, generates ideas and connects stakeholders in the defense ecosystem to promote an enduring military advantage for the United States, its allies, and partners. Our work identifies the defense strategies, capabilities, and resources the United States needs to deter and, if necessary, prevail in future conflict.
