This study aims to identify the policy of China towards the Arab States since its independence in 1949 until 2014, especially its position of the revolutions of the Arab Spring. The key assumption of this study is that the revolutions of the Arab Spring contributed to developing the Arab Chinese relations. The increasing interests of China in the Arab region contributed to developing these relations, especially in light of the state of disorder which clearly and openly threatens these interests in the Arab region. The researcher is interested in this study due to the strategic importance of China as an economic, political and military power with strong influence on international and regional politics. It mainly concentrated on the nature of the Arab Chinese relationship during the period between 1949 -2014, demonstrating China’s position of the Arab revolutions that broke out in late 2010. The researcher used the historical and descriptive approaches through an historic narrative of the Arab Chinese relationship and description and analysis of the Chinese position of the revolutions of the Arab Spring. It concluded that the Arab Chinese relationship is a structure of historical elements that went through several stages of crisis and détente and that these historical elements played a significant role in strengthening this relationship. It also concluded that the determinants of this relationship and China’s fear of losing it affected its position of the Arab Spring. China dealt with the Arab Spring revolutions attentively and cautiously. It always called for solving differences and disputes internally in accordance with the principle of sovereignty, refusing interference with domestic affairs. Political and socio-economic factors contributed to the start of the Arab Spring revolutions. The adverse conduct of the regimes towards their peoples pushed them to call for change. They suffered from poverty, ignorance and fear because of the policies of these regimes. These revolutions affected the Arab Chinese relationship and the Chinese position of these revolutions due to a number of scenarios that pushed China to intervene in the Arab region and observe its revolutions.
