Constitutional amendment responds to new era

Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, Chinese society has faced serious challenges brought about by previous internal problems and tremendous changes in the outside world. The new ruling team has not just been muddling along under the leadership of General Secretary Xi Jinping. Instead, it quickly started to deepen reforms in a comprehensive and magnificent way.

Constitutional amendment will improve CPC leadership

The constitution amendment is the punch line of legislative framework of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, and an essential constitutional insurance for China to advance. Out of rationality and faith, all Chinese people support the amendment and hope it can contribute to our well-being.

Attack on China's judicial system driven by bigotry

Rule of law has been regarded by Westerners as their advantage. China, defying Western accusations, develops well and is more confident in its national path. Conservative Western elites are upset by this fact. Views differ as to which political and judicial system is better. It will be judged by the results of social development and governance eventually. China is confident in this regard.

Carry forward national pride, and stay modest

While China should carry forward a sense of national pride and stand firm on safeguarding national interests, it also needs to stay modest, advocate the spirit of internationalism and sincerely push forward the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind.

Dual suspension on Korean Peninsula takes effect at Olympics

Washington's bellicose threats are globally unpopular. The more this approach engenders opposition, the greater the political risks for the US. Washington should consider other options than confrontation.

Will Moon accept invitation to visit North Korea?

Moon has the cards in his hand to pressure Washington into making concessions or at least lowering the intensity of joint military drills. It's certainly not easy and it could be politically risky, but only when he makes that move can there be true hope of peacefully resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis.

Is Sweden making 'Saving Gui Minhai' movie?

Taking Gui from his residence in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province to Beijing was not supposed to happen. The Swedish Embassy in China played a dishonorable role in the event.

China's law not under thumb of West

As China's opening-up deepens, the country will see more foreigners. It would be irresponsible of Western countries if they instilled in their citizens an extraterritorial mentality. China's rule of law is not under the thumb of the West. Anyone who violates Chinese law must face the consequences.

India must stop intervening in Malé

The Maldives' sovereignty should be respected. The political unrest should be left to the Maldivian people to address. We urge all sides in the country to exercise restraint and end the crisis at the minimum cost, striking the correct balance between legal and governmental authority.

China-Vatican relations take clearer shape

Beijing and the Vatican will establish diplomatic relations sooner or later. We believe Beijing's diplomats can manage the negotiations well, taking account of the national interest and the religious beliefs of Catholics.

UN sanctions flaw should be solved, not be politicized

Perhaps Washington and Western media are happy to shift the blame on China because the sanctions haven't altered Pyongyang's policy in the short term, but the international community should stay clear-minded.

Tillerson shows disdain for China's constructive approach to Latin America

Since the end of the Cold War, the US has neglected Latin America. Its investment in the region is declining. Tillerson disrespected Chinese investment in the region but his plan for what the US can do for these countries is full of empty words.

Ludicrous to tout Hong Kong rabble rousers for a Nobel Peace Prize

Wong and the others have in fact become tools for anti-China forces in the West. Their views are too narrow. They cannot see the bigger trend of history and they are unable to rein in their childishness and selfishness. There is no honor to be found in pursing their wrongful path of betraying the interests of Hong Kong and the motherland.
