Neither Washington nor Pyongyang can overawe each other

China is the main external victim of the North Korean nuclear crisis. It would be of no help if Washington and Seoul claim that China should take the major responsibility to prevent North Korea from conducting nuclear and missile activities and impose pressure on Beijing in an unfriendly manner.

Despite fear, terrorism can't overtake our lives

The famous Las Ramblas boulevard in Barcelona was turned into a bloody killing field by terrorists on Thursday.

Can US overcome social division this time?

China and the US have two completely different cultures and systems. Both of them will encounter problems and then solve them. History will prove which system is more effective in a longer span of time and make the two complement each other.
