Asian markets fell across the board in on Tuesday as investors remained cautious amid rising global tensions.
The Greater China markets fell, reversing gains seen over the last two sessions. The Shanghai composite shed 2.26 percent to close at 2,594.83 while the Shenzhen composite declined 1.92 percent to 1,300.29.
Meanwhile, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index fell 3 percent in afternoon trade.
"Yesterday's 4.1% rally in the Shanghai Composite Index is likely to have been a dead cat bounce," strategists at DBS Group Research wrote in a morning note. "Any stimulus by China should be viewed not as a boost but as a cushion against a slowing economy against external headwinds."
In South Korea, the Kospi fell 2.57 percent to 2,106.10, closing at a low not seen since March 2017.
One investor suggested that the time is not ripe to re-enter Asian markets.
"In the short term, we believe that the U.S. dollar is still a bit too strong and also, interest rates in the U.S. are likely to continue to rise and also, the trade tensions at the moment are still a little bit too high," Khiem Do, head of Asian multi-asset at Barings, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday.
"I think that we need to see those three catalysts actually improving somewhat for us to re-enter into... the markets," he said.
Australia's ASX 200 closed down 1.05 percent at 5,843.1, with the heavily-weighted financial sector falling 1.18 percent and the energy subindex declining 3.21 percent.

Investors remain cautious over mounting geopolitical tensions around the world.
A Saudi official provided this weekend a new account of the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, deviating from a prior official statement from Saudi Arabia. Khashoggi's death has led to global criticism toward Saudi Arabia and has sent ripple effects throughout global markets. Last week, foreign investors reportedly dumped more than $1 billion worth of Saudi stocks.
Meanwhile, the U.S.-China trade war remain a focus for markets. A Chinese official told American investors at a meeting that Beijing did not "fear" a trade war with Washington.
"China never wants a trade war with anybody, not to mention the U.S., who has been a long term strategic partner, but we also do not fear such a war," Zhang Qingli, a leading member of a Chinese committee tasked with forging alliances with other nations, said through a translator at the meeting in Beijing. That was according to a meeting attendee who declined to be named.
