Abstract

The author analyzes recent Chinese foreign policy which was influenced by two events: the Tienanmen incident and the fall of the Berlin wall. China began to open up in the early 80s when it adopted the policy of reforms and openness. This kind of foreign policy went hand in hand with domestic economic reforms. The Tienanmen military crackdown on the democratic movement affected the domestic reforms as well as the foreign policy orientation of China whose goal was to overcome its isolationist tendencies. The author looks into the position of the Chinese foreign policy regarding SFR Yugoslavia and its successor states. He also provides an analysis of the place and role of the Republic of Croatia in Chinese foreign policy. The author concludes that the conditions for expanding the cooperation between the Republic of Croatia and the People’s Republic of China are quite auspicious.
