A sentence from newspaper Because of its history, the White Australia policy and the statements of some politicians, it is on a ' good behaviour bond' in the eyes of many thinking Asians, who remain uncertain about the depth and sincerity of its commitment to its Asian neighbourhood. What does a good behaviour bond mean here? Can you also give me another example using this expression? Thanx

In a phrase like "good-behavior bond", the word "bond" has the meaning of an agreement based on the actions of the government. In other words, the future actions of the government will determine whether the agreement remains intact.
