David Firestein, EWI Perot fellow and vice president for Strategic Trust-Building and Track 2 Diplomacy, will discuss Threading the Needle: Proposals for U.S. and Chinese Actions on Arms Sales to Taiwan—a groundbreaking report on U.S. arms sales to Taiwan—at Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.     

Threading the Needle—the result of two years of research and discreet consultations with policymakers and scholars from the United States, China and Taiwan—is the first report by a U.S.-based think tank to conclude publicly that both the United States and China have, for their own reasons, not fully complied with their commitments to each other on the issue of U.S. arms sales to Taiwan.
