The accidental bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade has further soured the relationship between the US and China. Tensions were already high because of espionage allegations, but that didn’t stop Premier Zhu Rongji from visiting Washington last month. Now, however, ill feeling towards the US has spilled onto the streets and the government is doing little to quell the protests. A panel talks about the lethal and politically damaging mistake in Belgrade and what it could mean for the future of US-China relations.
