Weakening transatlantic ties provide new opportunity for Europe


We must not only cope with the pressure of the US trade war, but also deepen cooperation with Europe, especially Germany, and promote the implementation of the Belt and Road initiative in the continent.

Understanding China-EU cooperation with rational mind

As China grows stronger economically and has a bigger say in the international community, more countries seek cooperation with China. In today's world where countries are entwined in each other's interests, more cooperation is a natural outcome and on an equal basis. In this process, mutual respect is essential while a condescending view must be abandoned.

Time for new thinking on the Middle East

The new developments are fostering a community of common destiny in the Middle East, compatible with China's Belt and Road initiative, in benefiting many countries with better infrastructure, while making the regional setup more open and inclusive. There would be at least major areas of cooperation between China and the region: infrastructure connectivity (by upgrading the existing 16+1 mechanism with Eastern and Central European countries), financial connectivity, joint collaboration to help the other nations (along with other extra-regional powers), and offer of services to resolve cross-border commercial disputes.

Caution needed over thawing China-Japan ties

On the day the Diplomatic Bluebook was issued, Japan updated its Basic Plan on Ocean Policy in five years in which it for the first time explicitly referred to maritime security by calling on the defense ministry and coast guard to develop an integrated information system with improved radar and satellite cover to protect uninhabited islands. You could read between the lines, even though China is not directly singled out in the document. The valuable window of opportunity for improving Sino-Japanese relations must be seized, but China should tread softly.

China, US reach win-win victory with trade war truce

China must continue to expand its market capacity and enhance the country's irreplaceability in global production and supply chains. It is time for Chinese citizens to see that if China wants to become a modern power in the world, there is a lot of work to do.

Recognizing the 1992 Consensus is the only option for Tsai. Otherwise Taiwan will inevitably be isolated and become a political freak in the world.

Despite global mess, there is no Cold War II

China has stayed calm and stable in this warfare and assumed its role in bringing about tranquility in the world. For the rest of the world, China is an honest, law-abiding and responsible large country as well as a trustworthy partner. What will ultimately lead the world is integrity and sincerity, not fighter jets and guided missiles.

Joint efforts of China, EU needed to fight unilateralism

Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, has noted that "Now we have a leaderless, multipolar world. While we may talk about the G7, G8 or G20, the more apt description is G-Zero. We will have to learn how to live, and thrive, in this new world." This is the part where Beijing and Brussels carefully deliberate how to enhance their cooperation, which is not simply aimed at easing the stress brought on by the US, but at maintaining and improving the current global order.

Taiwan TV series has a wrong take on history

Any attempt to glorify the Fascist aggression and colonizing history must be dealt with sternly. South Korea has always been firm on this and use of the Nazi salute is a criminal offence in European countries. Some people may have become too used to slavery and forgotten how to stand up. They must learn to.
