Considering the formation of terrorist groups from nationals of various countries in recent decades, and taking into account the point that the activities of these groups have exited from the state of activity within a land, and has become an international activity, it has caused more concern for great countries. Central Asia is among the most important regions in which terrorist forces and religious extremists have been strengthening themselves by using revenues resulted from drug transit that have significantly made the Central Asia region and the interests of influential countries face with serious threat. China is among the countries that has a great deal of interests in the energy domain and other dimensions in this region. This research is done by descriptive-analytical method and has obtained the required data from books and articles. Therefore, the main question of this research, which was conducted with the aim of investigating China's foreign policy strategy for narkoterorisme or drug traffickers and their organized assassinations, was proposed as what is the most important strategy Beijing has taken for controlling and managing the drug trafficker forces and their organized assassinations, or in other words narkoterorisme, for its diplomatic system? The research findings, performed using defensive realism, have stated that China is seeking to reduce security problems created by terrorist forces and drug traffickers through multilateralism with Russia and Iran in a bilateral and cooperative way within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the construction of Silk Road to attract capital for Central Asia and the economic development of this region.
