The fall of world communism and collapse of the Soviet Union reinforced lessons about how sovereignty might be undercut. This left a legacy of defensiveness about the use of values in international relations, whether targeted at rights for ethnic and religious minorities or at the build-up of a civil society. When it seemed that Japan and the United States were in league in imposing sanctions and criticizing China for human rights, China looked for gaps in their regional cooperation. It found them in Southeast Asia and made great progress in normalizing and building relations.
