Is Kazakhstan China’s new territorial dispute? What are the prospects of the Kazakh-Chinese relations?

Recent article titled ‘Why Kazakhstan is eager to return to China?’ published on a Chinese website has caused a public fury in Kazakhstan. Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement the article did not represent Beijing’s official position.

Lyazzat Shatayeva spoke to Wade Shepard, journalist focusing on China’s Belt and Road Initiative, author of books “Ghost Cities of China” and “On the New Silk Road” to understand the status and prospects of the Kazakh-Chinese relations.
