The US strategy of encirclement, embargo and isolation to destabilise the PRC was failing. Although this had caused severe difficulties for China’s development, far from collapsing, the PRC had proved able to consolidate its national strength. Support for China’s UN recognition was building up as more and more newly independent African and Asian states joined the organisation, and continued opposition by the United States to this was becoming an embarrassment. The myth of a monolithic Communist conspiracy had been completely exploded by the Sino–Soviet split in the 1960s, easing the way for the normalisation of Sino–US relations.
The new advances in the US hegemonic project, focused as they were on the Middle East and Central Asia, were evidence not so much of a change of strategic orientation away from Europe and East Asia as of a shift in tactics from the ‘python strategy’ based on NATO and the US–Japanese alliance to close in on Russia and China from both east and west, to a Eurasian focus to contain Russia from below and China from the west. CHINA’S MULTIPOLAR DIPLOMACY STARTS TO UNFOLD For China, the end of the Cold War between the United States and USSR represented both a threat and an opportunity.
Revolutionary struggles of national liberation, of which China’s was the first to succeed, were key drivers of this trend. Although the world situation was still dominated by the two superpowers during this period, and neocolonialism was prevalent, limiting the independence of the new states freed from direct colonial rule, the shift in effect was the first step towards a qualitatively new stage of world history, that of multipolarity. 1 By this definition, not only states, but popular political movements – including revolutionary, anti-imperialist, anti-war, peace and social justice movements – can all serve as poles in a multipolar world, exerting strategic influence on world politics.
