This chapter reveals that the United States was focused on establishing a better partnership with China after September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center, and has realized that it can play a strategic role in counterterrorist operations. China has also realized the consequences of such unconventional forms of warfare after suffering from terrorist activities in the Xinjiang province and East Turkistan border, and is emphasizing more integration of counterterrorism measures in its domestic and foreign policies to address the challenge. It has realized that establishing a better partnership with the United States can help in dealing with such threats more effectively. The United States and China can also derive mutual benefits for dealing with terrorism by exploiting respective strategic location and advanced weapon technologies.

Keywords:   United States, China, counterterrorism, foreign policy, strategic location
