With progressing globalization after the end of the Cold War, the national security concept (NSC) has experienced new situations and has faced new challenges. Globalization, as an important variable affecting national behaviour around the world, has deeply influenced the people’s understanding of national security to adopt a new perspective in addressing NSC issues, thus initiating relative changes in the NSC. On this background the Chinese government adopted a new security concept based on mutual trust and benefit, on equality and cooperation. Based on this guidance, the Chinese government launched diplomatic moves for a new security environment in the 21st century.
