Abstract

Sino-American rapprochement resulted in detente by breaking the Sino-American Cold War that dominated Asia after World War Ⅱ. It also had a great impact on sustaining regional cooperation in the Asia-Pacific. This article analyzes Korean diplomacy toward Asia under detente in relation to the ASPAC (Asian and Pacific Council). This article explains why ASPAC became obsolete and how the Korean government attempted to preserve the ASPAC in the face of dismantlement while easing of strained relations among the states in the region. There were two reasons for the failure of ASPAC. The main external reason was that Sino-American rapprochement, in conjunction with Sino-Japanese normalization, ended the Cold War in East Asia. As a result, ASPAC was longer needed to resist Communist China. (The rest omitted)
