Sino-European Security Cooperation in Africa

The European Council on Foreign Relations published on 3 November 2014 a commentary titled "African Security -- A Bright Spot for Sino-European Cooperation" by Richard Gowan.  The author notes that China's increasing investments in Africa have made it increasingly sensitive to African security issues.  He suggests there is a potential for Sino-European cooperation in places like Mali and Cote d'Ivoire.  At the same time, compared to the South China Sea or Sino-Russian ties, China's security interests in Africa are marginal and not strategically important.
