Trump U-turn on Pakistan reflects failure of US Afghanistan policy


The Trump administration previously used to highlight India's role in the future reconstruction of Afghanistan and publicly blast Pakistan, trying to force Islamabad to do what Washington asks.

With declining loaning power, Western countries uneasy as emerging nations step in

It seems that every one of China's careless mistakes, even an innocuous error, will be used by the US and other Western countries. They distort and exaggerate the truth, making it harder for Beijing to resolve the issue. China has to deal with every problem in a perfect way, better than the Western countries did before.

Australia's Huawei ban violates free trade

The ban on Huawei 5G will hurt the improving Sino-Australian relations. In his speech at the University of New South Wales, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spoke highly of the achievements of cooperation in innovation and technology research and development between the two countries and expressed hope that bilateral relations will develop on the basis of mutual respect and understanding.

Modi's tilt to Washington in foreign policy damages ties with Beijing

Manila's China policy not dictated by ideology

Time for US to recalibrate China policy in Southeast Asia

When evaluating Pompeo's pyrotechnical ASEAN-centric diplomatic engagements in the past few days, can we infer that the Trump administration has upgraded and advanced Southeast Asia to the primary diplomatic agenda? My answer is no.
