The Chinese Communist Revolution in 1949 caused extensive changes in China's foreign policy. This country has gone through different periods of foreign policy and its relations with the countries of the world have been accompanied by many ups and downs. Overall, China's foreign policy since the communist revolution in 1949 can be divided into two different periods; Mao era and post-Mao era. During Mao's era, China adopted a policy of relying on the Soviet Union to protect its nascent system, but after some time, Mao distanced himself from the Soviet Union due to ideological differences with Moscow and put the policy of relying on himself on the agenda. After the death of Mao and the rise of Deng Xiaoping, China moved away from ideological policies and moved towards a realistic and pragmatic policy. In fact, it was during this period that China, by breaking with Mao's ideological policies, witnessed a turn in its foreign policy that has remained in force until today. The present research, with a descriptive-analytical method, has investigated and explained the various aspects of China's foreign policy from the Mao era to the present day and tries to answer the question of what has happened to China's foreign policy since the communist revolution in 1949 until now. Have there been any changes? Based on the results of this research, China's foreign policy has distanced itself from its ideological hue and follows a realistic and pragmatic approach based on global geopolitical realities.
