"The Belt and Road Initiative" is an important decision made by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council according to the current international situation, which includes two economic regions: "Silk Road Economic Belt" and "21st Century Maritime Silk Road". "The Belt and Road Initiative" contains the development connotation based on economic cooperation, supported by people-to-people exchanges and aiming at mutual benefit and win-win. With the in-depth development of globalization and the deepening of China's integration into the world, both international security pressure and domestic development pressure are on a sharp rise, thus posing a severe challenge to a series of strategic principles and thinking modes that China's diplomacy has long adhered to. The "One belt, one road" strategy injects new connotations and vitality into the existing bilateral, multilateral and even regional cooperation mechanisms between China and many countries along the "The Belt and Road Initiative". From the perspective of the relationship between "The Belt and Road Initiative" and China's new diplomatic strategy, this paper holds that there is a mutually reinforcing relationship between the two, thus exploring the future development prospects of China's diplomacy.
