Ralph Weber Comments on Switzerland’s Neutrality in Nikkei Asia-Report on Swiss-Chinese Relations
In the current global environment, neutrality has become a burden for Switzerland, says Ralph Weber in a recent Nikkei Asia-report that explores the Swiss government’s inconsistency on democratic values in its behavior towards Russia and China. The rise of China, as he elaborates, puts Bern in an uncomfortable position and tests its ability to hold its neutral position. The report was published on 2 March 2023.
