Abstract

This article seeks to analyze Taiwan's two diplomatic policy guidelines, "viable diplomacy" and "diplomatic truce" through offensive realism. According the offensive realism's assumption, China is likely to become a potential hegemon in the East Asia and may attempt to change the status quo in the future. For the reason China is now becoming a major problem affecting regional security. Moreover, China is the most significant factors for impacting Taiwan's diplomacy. Therefore, this article introduces the China's possible actions at first, and then assesses the effects and influences of both Taiwan's new diplomatic policy guidelines under the rising Chinese hegemon. The argument of the article is the Taiwan's diplomatic situation has remained stable under these guidelines, but Taiwan may be regarded as a China's ally against the U.S. and Japan. With this development, Taiwan needs to strengthened its political, economic and military relations with the other countries in this region and attempt to avoid regarding as a only partner of China to jointly change the current security situation in regional special flash point, such as Diaoyu/Senkaku islands dispute.
