Kelly Sims Gallagher, academic dean and director of the climate policy lab at Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, said the two countries needed to maintain an open dialogue. “They need to have clear and complete understandings of each other so that mistrust does not accumulate,” she said. “I do not think that cooperation is necessary at this juncture, but coordination and dialogue are essential.”
