In a speech earlier this year, veteran diplomat Bilahari Kausikan Singapore that China is making foreign policy a "passive aggression" by setting out the situation, "the dilemma" sham for its neighbors in the region.
Recently, the Chinese ambassador in Korea announced action to implement the system Defensive Area High Range Phasing (THAAD) of the US in Korea could jeopardize bilateral relations "immediately".
Andrew Browne commentator WSJ said that how China's response on the Korean government put before a difficult choice: Either take steps to protect the national interest and people's lives under the threat county North Korean workers, or keep the relationship warm recently returned with giant neighbor and largest trading partner of the country.
According to Browne, choose "follow or fight" that Beijing poses to Seoul is definitive, either express-style foreign policy to suppress the country's neighbors in East Asia.
Message they broadcast to the smaller neighboring states very clearly. If they stand up against China to protect its interests - especially when partnered with the US - they risk losing the benefits of trade, investment and aid from China. Mr Browne said that this is the Chinese way to convince neighbors that they had no choice but to go against their wishes. The ultimate aim, which Beijing wants to achieve dominance in the region.
Analysts said that the foreign policy of Beijing in essence is a game of wits rather than war games, even though China has built one of the most powerful military force in the world. In this cerebral game, the Chinese want to sow the early leaders of neighboring countries approved the idea domination "inevitable" in the region of Beijing, and will make the decision to follow the script dirty.
To implement this policy, Chinese diplomats often use words anonymous threat to other countries. The government has not cooperated with them would allegedly be "hurt the feelings" of more than 1.3 billion Chinese people.
"This approach aims to make you feel guilty - you have to be really obnoxious guys can hurt too many people like that - and it contains a warning no secret about rumple of a great power, "he said Kausikan.
Weapons trade
So far, China did not make any threats to South Korean retaliation if they deploy THAAD. However, meaningful words about "trade relations" that Beijing made was enough to make Seoul officials feel insecure.
For a long time, Chinese trade has been used as a diplomatic weapon against its neighbors. In periods of tension with Japan in 2010, China has cut off exports of rare earths to Japan to put pressure on this country. After South Korea announced plans to deploy THAAD, China immediately retaliated by refusing to grant visas to the South to the country stars performing.
Korea is not the only country being China imposes foreign policy of this kind, by Singapore also experienced similar pressures. With the majority of citizens are ethnic Chinese Singapore, China hopes to force the government to take the policy, pro-Beijing stance in international affairs, particularly in the South China Sea dispute.
Singapore is the country coordinator of ASEAN Dialogue Relations - China, and recently many Chinese newspapers have relentlessly criticized Singapore for having "not according to the Chinese side" after the Court of Arbitration ruling rejected "the road beef tongue "on the East Coast.
Earlier this month, Chinese Foreign Ministry also issued a statement requested Singapore to "respect" their stance on the East Sea verdict. "China hopes Singapore, as a coordinator, can maintain an objective stance and justice, to promote bilateral relations and maintain a stable relationship, healthy between ASEAN and China" .
Another objective targeted by China with strategic attack of this kind in the Philippines. After a resounding victory in the lawsuit "U-shaped line" before international courts, Manila now seemed to want to put aside the judgment aside and seek to compromise with Beijing in the South China Sea issue in exchange grab the investments, according to Browne.
One other neighbors are also torn between choosing security with commercial interests in its relations with China is Australia, a close ally with the United States but also the country depends heavily on exports Chinese iron ore.
While the Australian government stressed the importance of relations with US allies and determined to preserve peace and stability in the South China Sea, the mining magnate influential and well-known scholars and cried called compromise with China to protect trade and investment. The analyst said that if the concessions China Australia, a large region of East Asia will fall into the influence of Beijing.
Mr Browne said that foreign policy was rooted in the blood of the Chinese people. "They like to consider themselves the center of an empire, a favor for the surrounding water by civilization benefits from its radiance. But to receive that gift, the first neighbor to admit superpower status of China in the region, "he said.
However, experts believe that this is the wrong way of thinking, because history is always campaigning, and the current era unlike ancient feudal period. China remains a regional power, but they also have equal status as the other sovereign state. In a global economy and regional connectivity, the trade considered as a gift from the "modern Chinese emperor" is just old-fashioned idea, Brown commented.
"Which countries accept only choose between security and prosperity have accidentally shut the other door in a new order and balance in East Asia. However, China also needs areas like water area to their needs ", Kausikan stressed.
