China has increasingly acted as a full-fledged global player, as in the evolving strategic partnership with Latin America for the past decade. The main concern is whether China will become a potential threat to the US in the region, even though it does not claim to seek such a role. China’s new presence in Latin America coincides with a retreat of the U.S. from the region and the rise of leftist politicians in Latin America. It is a misperception that China is responsible for these developments. Part of the concerns of China’s presence in Latin America was brought by the spread of terrorism and the rise of Asia, as well as local responses to neo-liberal reforms in the region. However, both China and Latin American countries are exploring their new ties to adapt to an international system with power shifts and diffusion. A strong and sustainable tie between China and Latin America will enhance each other’s international status, regardless of their current domestic transitions.

Keywords:   Sino–Latin American relationship, power shift, international system, autonomy
