Abstract: 

China’s Eurasian frontiers have emerged as a major factor in Beijing’s foreign policy through President Xi Jinping’s “One Belt, One Road” strategy. The article argues that this strategy has been given impetus by the shifting geopolitical landscape in Central Asia resulting from the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, Russia’s relative decline, and Beijing’s quest for stability in its restive province of Xinjiang.
