Relations between China and its Asian neighbors have worsened since Beijing declared an "Air Defense Identification Zone" in the East China Sea in November.

Southeast Asian nations joined the tirade of anti-China rhetoric at the beginning of the year when Beijing announced rules requiring foreign fishing vessels to obtain approval to enter waters under its jurisdiction in the South China Sea, a popular maritime route for the region.
Analysts say geopolitical tensions are a key risk to Asia's economic and political stability and may hurt trade relations with the world's second-largest economy.
