Abstract : The author analyzes three bilateral relationships connecting China, Japan, and the United States to each other, taking into account vital U.S security and economic interests in Northeast Asia, one of the most dynamic regions of the world. He suggests that in the short range, Washington should avoid significant changes of policy; but in the long range, establish ways for the major states, particularly China and Japan, to assert greater initiative commensurate with their economic power within a stable political context. multilateral operational structures to supplement existing bilateral relations in Northeast Asia may provide a means for the United States to influence long-range trends and protect U.S. interests.
