On Dec 26, 2017, SIGNAL, in cooperation with the Institute for Policy and Strategy at IDC Herzliya and the Israel Council on Foreign Relations, held its 2nd annual conference on Israel’s China Policy. This year’s conference, “China on the World Stage – Strategic Implications for Israel,” provided a forum for discussing China’s “New Era” and the Middle Kingdom’s engagement in the turbulent Middle East.
 
The conference was divided into two sections, a closed, morning session that simulated conflict between the US and North Korea, and afternoon round-table styled discussions open to the general public, conducted for an overflow crowd. The 4-hour, morning simulation included over a dozen scholars and experts from Israeli and Chinese think tanks, former diplomats and retired military personnel who represented the USA, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Israel, Japan and South Korea. North Korea’s representation included former Mossad director Efraim Halevy and former Chinese representative to the 6 Party Talks, Mr. Yang Xiyu.
