Abstract: This study seeks to have an eagle view of Chinese contemporary diplomatic relations with her neighboring countries, within the South-East-Asia region. It analysis the five principles of Chinese foreign policy in her relations with the world, especially those states that have political, economic and communist ideological commonalities, such as Vietnam, North Korea and Laos among others. Findings show that Chinese diplomatic principles are built on a foundation of peaceful coexistenceand cemented by the spirit of mutual respectand seeking common ground, while reserving differences. The study made the conclusion that so long the Chinese diplomatic principles perpetuateand other countries emulate such diplomatic tenets by ceasing to be belligerent, so long the international community would continue to have peaceful atmosphere within the framework of international politics. The study recommends a gradual and peaceful resolution of the South China sea impasse, between and among her neighbors inter alia.
