La guerre d'Algérie et les relations franco-chinoises

Abstract : The Algerian War (1954-1962) took place in a particular historical context of the bankruptcy of colonialism, the development of the Cold War and the emergence of the Third World. Despite the little intervention by the People’s Republic of China between 1954 and 1962, this war brought the conflicting history between East and West to a climax so that the Chinese government has always been very attentive to the development of the conflict. During the war, China received a large number of Algerian delegations, recognized the GPRA and established diplomatic relations. China’s policy towards Algeria was, on the one hand, to encourage it on the path of armed struggle which would be accompanied by the resolution of the problem through negotiations, on the other hand, to remind Algeria to prevent the United States from interfering in the internal affairs of the country. At the same time, China provided considerable aid to Algeria. The Chinese government used its support for Algeria to reaffirm its claim to embody a truly revolutionary ideology. More importantly, this support was an important element of China’s foreign policy during this period, reflecting the consciousness of China’s united front to counter the United States, the most important part of China’s diplomacy. Behind the Chinese government’s declarations, policies and actions in favor of the FLN, we also see that the Chinese government wanted to impose new bilateral relations on the French government.As the Algerian War continued from 1958 onwards, China and France undertook to make contact and to probe repeatedly on the issue of recognition and establishment of diplomatic relations. The Algerian War therefore had an impact on the development of Franco-Chinese relations. It was a major obstacle in the rapprochement between the French and Chinese governments, especially from 1958 until 1962.
