Abstract :After the Obama administration took power, the United States has shown its interest in the region represented by President's attendance on East Asia Summit; "Pivot to Asia" speech; accession to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation and promoting the negotiation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership(TPP). Does the United States support or oppose East Asian regional integration? Is America's renewed interest in Asia Pacific multilateralism serious or more aimed to contain China's expanding influence in the region? America's perceptions toward East Asian regional integration are still evolving and far from concluding into a stable strategy. America's major stance has largely been "wait-and-see". Although America's attitudes might be fluid, the major variables affecting them remain relatively stable. They include: America's major national interest; primary goal and tradition in its East Asia diplomacy. First, America's major national interest in East Asia is to serve for its global strategy and overwhelming policy priority. America's perceptions toward East Asian regional integration are subject to the most urgent policy priority. Second, U.S. East Asia diplomacy's primary goal is to maintain America's predominant presence and avoid the emergence of any other single dominant power in the region. America's assessment of whether China would replace the U.S. as the dominant power in the region would affect U.S. perceptions toward East Asian regional integration. Third, the long-standing tradition in America's East Asia diplomacy is its confidence in bilateralism and skepticism in multilateralism. Whether multilateralism in East Asia would come at the expense of bilateralism seems to affect U.S. perceptions toward East Asian regional integration.
