An Assessment Report on the Situations of Security in Chinas Neighborhood (2014-2015)

Zhang Yunling & Ren Jingjing

Abstract: The situations and structure of security in China’s neighborhood are going through important historical adjustments. Generally speakingthe overall stability is being maintained in China’s neighborhoodbut the security relations and structure are still complicated and on a process of fluid changes. Therefore, it is difficult to avoid unpredictable and disruptive events and there still exists a possibility of risk escalation. The most important characteristic of the current adjustments and development of the security situations is the new adaptations and interactions occurring in China’s relations with its neighboring countries and the apparent strengthening of China’s initiative and activeness to shape its security environment. Furthermorethree trends deserve close attentions when taking a prospect over the development of the security situations in China’s neighborhood: (1) It is likely to sustain the trend of the overall improvement of China’s relations with major powers in its neighborhood. (2) The hot security issues related to China’s neighborhoodparticularly the issues of “the two seas” (the South and East China Seas),will develop in the direction of “stabilizing the overall situation”. Howeversome individual countriessuch as the Philippineswill not change its provocative measures in the short term. (3) The non-traditional security issues, such as the issues related to terrorism and internet security, will remain in a period of high risk, so it is necessary to enhance multilateral coordination and cooperation.

New Challenges from Chinas Neighboring Environment and Chinas New Strategy for Its Neighboring Diplomacy in the Next Decade Shi Yuanhua & Qi Huaigao

Abstract: In the second decade of 21st century, complicated and major changes are occurring in China’s neighboring environment, which have brought new challenges to China’s neighboring diplomacy. China’s fast development and the U.S. strategy of re-pivoting to Asia form a structural contradiction and hedge between a newly emerging power and status quo hegemony. Now China is faced with five major challenges from its neighboring environment: first, the overlapping of its neighbors’ increasing suspicions and the external powers’ deepening involvement into Asian affairs; second, the mismatch between China’s self-perception and its neighbors’ deviated perceptions toward China; third, the concurrence of China’s simmering maritime security challenges and its land security issues; fourth, the Darwinian competition of various multilateral institutions and initiatives in the Asia regionand fifththe interconnection between China’s less-developed borderland and China’s deteriorated neighboring environment. To better safeguard its national interests and Asia’s stability, China needs to put forward new strategies of neighboring diplomacy in the next decade. The subsequent strategies of neighboring diplomacy are identified as followsfirstlyChina should adopt measures to ease its neighbors’ increasing suspicion and the external powers’ deepening balancing policy. Secondly, China should adjust the mismatch between China’s self-perception and some neighbors’ deviated perceptions toward China. Thirdly, China should regard its sea power and land power as equally important in the context of “building China into a marine power”. Fourthly, China should put forward its own designs for Asia’s regional multilateral institutions so as to accommodate itself to various multilateral institutions and initiatives. Fifthly, China should make an overall plan to balance its borderland development and its neighboring diplomacy. Therefore, Chinese periphery government needs to attach more importance to its neighboring diplomacy in the next decade. Accordingly, Chinese government also needs to upgrade the status of its neighboring diplomacy in China’s overall diplomacy.

On the New Security Concept for Asia and China

Xia Liping

Abstract:The “CommonComprehensiveCooperative and Sustainable Security for Asia”which is the new security concept for Asia put forward by Chinese President Xi Jinpingis the continuation and development of the Five Principles of Peaceful Co-existencewhich was put forward by ChinaIndia and Myanmar during 1950s. The core of this new concept has been the culture of “peace” of China. New idea is necessary in order to maintain security in this new period. The new security concept has been and will continue to be developed through struggles against Cold War mentalityand should be one of the basic principles of the international relations. The new security concept for Asia is the development of the theory of Harmonious World as well as the solemn demonstration of China’s peaceful development. This new concept is based on a zeitgeist that adheres to and enriches the central theme of peace and development. This zeitgeist has provided realistic conditions for the realization of the new Asian security concept.

Li Wannan

Abstract: The concept of “One Belt and One Road” refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Roadwhich were successively launched by Chinese President Xi Jinping during his state visit to Kazakhstan and Indonesia in September and October of 2013. The main objective of the two initiatives is to facilitate economic cooperation of the region and to strengthen the regional connectivityby integrating the rapidly growing economy of China with the benefits of all parties involved. The projects of these two initiatives will not only contribute to China’s grand strategy of reform and openingbut also promote China’s neighboring diplomacy. What’s morethe 21st Century Maritime Silk Road will help to realize China’s Dream on Maritime Power and to increase China’s influence in the world. Opportunities are occurring for China to construct the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road from three levelsnamelythe globalregionaland domestic level. Howeversome big challenges still exist.

Chinas Diplomacy: Drawing the Positive Energy from Historical Resources------A Brief Comparison of Silk Roads and Zheng Hes Voyages

Xu Bo

Abstract:China’s diplomacy is characterized by a skill to draw aspirations from history and to construct a common psychological basis for mutual communications and cooperation. The promotion of “One Belt and One Road” initiative may be regarded as a typical embodiment of such a skill. In current literature of researches on the “One Belt and One Road”the typical historical aspirations that are most frequently mentioned by scholars and leaders are the Silk Roads and the navigator Zheng He’s expeditionary voyages. In factalthough Zheng He’ voyages could be seen as a great feat and Zheng He himself should be regarded as a hero in the history of Chinathose voyages might contain some negative elements in terms of their naturespurposesactual effectsand historical influenceswhich does not accord with the appeals and goals of current Chinese diplomacy. Meanwhilethe Silk Roads refer to the network of ancient commercial and transport routes through lands and seas that connected ancient China to various civilizations during a very long period of history. Therefore it implies many positive and aspiring ideas and characteristicssuch as ancient China’s worldwide perspectivesthe ancient Chinese people’s pragmatic and progressive attitudes towards trade and commerceand their broad-minded spirit of pioneering and entrepreneurshipwhich conforms to the diplomatic appeals of China to the outside world. In consideration of this difference between these two conceptsit may be more useful for Chinese media and diplomats to talk more about the Silk Roads and less on Zheng He’s voyages.

Bidirectional Balance Strategy of Vietnam and Its China Projects    

Zhao Weihua

Abstract: In the context of China’s rise and the American re-pivot to the Asia-Pacific regionVietnam’s foreign policy is gradually shifted from the strategy of a balance between big powers to the stagey of a bidirectional-balance between China and U.S.which was approved by 11th congress of CPV. Howeverthere is a heated debate on the Vietnam’s strategy for its foreign relations and external securitybecause some Vietnamese advocate that Vietnam should ally with the US against China on the South China Sea issues. Under such circumstancesVietnam’s new leadership implemented the China Projects for the purpose of assessing the impact of China’s rise on Vietnam. The China projects has drawn a conclusion that China’s rise is inevitable and that China will avoid the use of force against Vietnam so as to ensure the strategic objective of its rise. The 981 incident and the subsequent anti-China riots made Vietnamese leaders recognize that it is too costly to ally with U.S. against Chinaand that there is no choice but to return to the Bidirectional balance strategy between China and US.
