During the Cold War period, the East Asian region had been the"forward base"for the United States and the European countries to prevent and deter Soviet Union. For weak strength of most countries in East Asia, they was either voluntary or compelled to carry out the dependent diplomacy. This kind of non—reciprocal diplomatic relations caused East Asia made little role in the international arena. After the Cold War, along with the rapid growth of economic strength and national self—determination consciousness awakening, East Asian countries has played an increasingly important role in international affairs. The United States and European countries must re—examine the new international situation, to appropriately adjust its strategy in East Asia. to adapt to the new international environment and develops a new space for their own development.This article writing mentality lies in, that first carries on a more systematic outline of the United States and European's East Asia strategy after the Cold War .And then use the comparative methods to explore the similarities and differences on the East Asian strategy between United States and Europe. On this basis, I will analyze its effects on the future development of China's East Asia policy. In line with this thinking, the article is divided into four parts to be addressed.PartⅠoutlines U.S. strategy in East Asia after the Cold War. Facing great changes in the international situation, the United States government rethought the interests of their own country and regarded participating in the East Asian as an important national interest. Because of this, after the cold war the American three sessions of governments have made the varying adjustment to the East Asian strategy .They put main attention to economy to both attention to economy and security , and then to unilateralism and power flavor. Different periods show different characteristics in the East Asian strategy. The United States will continue the strategy of military and alliance as the major content, intensify cooperation with East Asian countries, to prevent the rapid rise of China's challenge.PartⅡdetails the post—Cold War European countries and EU's new Asia policy. In a fresh understanding of Asia's international status, due to internal and external pressures, the European countries had to establish and develop relations with East Asian countries as a part of diplomatic work. Germany, France, Britain and other major European countries have introduced and implemented a new strategy to Asia. The European Union committee also positively fulfilled new Asian policy in 1994. In the next few years, it is optimistic about the prospects of the new Asia policy, it should overcome some obstacles to implementation of the policy. For example trade discrimination and political interference.PartⅢmakes a comparative analysis of the similarities and differences between the United States and Europe's East Asian strategy. The same point is that the adjustments were both based on a dramatic changing of international situation after the Cold War, and both has undergone the rapidly rising of East Asia ,and the purpose of the new strategy in East Asia is to pursuit national interests. However, the United States and Europe had different focus in the implementation of the strategy in East Asia. This largely depended on different factors, such as the internal structure, and reflected the different expect on the future international order by the United States and Europe.Part IV analyzes the influence of the United States and Europe's to China. The one hand, the strategy brings pressures and challenges to China's future economic development and national security; on the other hand, also provides a reference to China's East Asia policy. We need to regard maintaining stability in East Asia and seeking common development as mission, through multilateral cooperation and multilateral sharing which based on the realization of the interests of East Asian countries, establish a common development and a new order of peace and stability in East Asia as the mainstream.
