Marvin Ott and Derek Maseloff, Senior Scholar and Research Assistant, respectively, at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, explain that “There is little doubt that [Malaysian Prime Minister] Najib understands the implications of Chinese ambitions and methods. He also understands the critical importance of the U.S. as a counterweight to China.”
