SINO-JAPANESE RELATIONS: A Subset of Sino-American Ties
Many analysts look at Sino-Japanese tensions in a vacuum. Focusing on the bilateral relationship, especially the territorial disputes and those related to Japanese imperialism prior to 1945, they lose tract of the broader context of the Sino-Japanese context. Japan is the largest US ally in the Asia-Pacific. It hosts numerous US military installations making it central to American power projection in the region. Its armed forces are part of the coalition the United States has assembled in Asia since the start of the Cold War. The latent confrontation between Beijing and Tokyo therefore reflects the clash between China and the United States. To a considerable extent, the path of Sino-Japanese relations will be dictated by the trajectory of Sino-American ones.
