Despite the growing quantity of linkages between both sides, EU-China ties remain derivate of relations with the US. The EU and China are not each other's foreign policy priorities. A close analysis of five key 'lenses' of understanding Sino-European affairs reveals the extent to which US interests and alliance commitments mediate, shape, and influence the relationship between Europe and China. The controversy surrounding the attempts to lift the EU's arms embargo on China is a case in point. China's ability to exploit differences among EU member states has been reduced not only by better coordination among the EU but also by the formation of EU-US transatlantic dialogues on the rise of China.
