Warianty tytułu
Wietnam jako "mocarstwo średniej wielkości" na przykładzie jego współpracy z państwami indochińskimi
Języki publikacji
The article presents the process of evolution of Vietnam policy towards other Indochinese countries in the broader context of changes in the direction of Vietnam's foreign policy. Hegemonic aspirations of Hanoi and imposing its domination over Laos and Cambodia during the Cold War were met with the resistance (also armed) and aversion of these countries. However, a departure from the ideological aspect of foreign policy, reorientation to cooperation and the membership in ASEAN have significantly influenced the change in the approach of Vietnam. The withdrawal of troops from Cambodia and the termination of the conflict, the support for the accession of Cambodia and Laos to ASEAN contributed to a significant improvement of the image of Vietnam in the region. Close cooperation - also in the sphere of development - with Vientiane and Phnom Penh, both in the Association, and regardless of its, cause the situation in which Hanoi changes from unwanted hegemony to the accepted leader of Indo-Chinese states.

Artykuł przedstawia proces ewolucji polityki Wietnamu wobec pozostałych państw indochińskich w szerszym kontekście zmiany kierunku wietnamskiej polityki zagranicznej. Hegemonistyczne aspiracje Hanoi i narzucenie swojej dominacji nad Laosem i Kambodżą w czasie zimnej wojny spotkało się z oporem (również zbrojnym) i niechęcią tych państw. Jednak odejście od ideologicznego aspektu polityki zagranicznej, reorientacja na współpracę i członkostwo w ASEAN znacząco wpłynęły na zmianę podejścia Wietnamu. Wycofanie wojsk z Kambodży i zakończenie konfliktu, wsparcie procesu akcesyjnego Kambodży i Laosu do ASEAN wpłynęły na znaczną poprawę wizerunku Wietnamu w regionie. Ścisła współpraca - również rozwojowa - z Vientiane i Phnom Penh zarówno na forum Stowarzyszenia, jak i niezależnie od niego sprawiają, że Hanoi z niechcianego hegemona zmienia się w akceptowanego lidera państw indochińskich.
