This chapter discusses the impact of the development of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) on China-U.S. relations in Central Asia. By reinforcing cooperation in Central Asia, the SCO helps overall ties between China and the United States. This improves relations in Central Asia as well. However, further development of the SCO faces serious challenges in its second decade. The SCO-U.S. relationship is closely linked with the Sino-U.S. relationship, and both influence each other, particularly in Central Asia. Indeed, Sino-U.S. relations in the region would be harmed if there were confrontations between the SCO and the United States in Central Asia. It is foreseeable that the developing trend of the SCO will be important to Sino-U.S. relations in Central Asia for a long time to come.

Keywords:   SCO, China-U.S. relations, SCO-U.S. relationship, Sino-U.S. relationship
