Sino-Japanese Relations: Implications for Southeast Asia

Abstract

Sino-Japanese relations are still in the shadow of the past. Without much mutual trust, China is wary of Japan's military capability and desire to be a political power. China's policy toward Japan has largely reflected its perceptions although the two do not necessarily mirror each other. It is in China's interests to forge a constructive relationship with Japan. However, a series of challenges will test the wills and skills of both leaderships. As a region of strategic importance for both China and Japan, Southeast Asia is poised to benefit from the strategic competition of the two Asian giants. Yet at the same time, ASEAN should play an active role in strengthening regional security order by involving China and Japan into regional confidence-building measures and economic co-operation.
