Are Western elites impeding Google's path to China?

Whether Google left or not eight years ago and whether it will return is more important for Google than for China. China has become the world's largest internet market which is open to all. It stands on an equal footing with other markets in the world.

West misreads China-Russia partnership

Last week the US officially re-established its Second Fleet. Earlier, Washington announced a US “space force” and also identified China and Russia as “strategic competitors.” All that is dragging the world backwards. The US government should not make confrontation the theme of this era. If Washington really triggers the retrogression of the globe, it will not be forgiven by history.

Media hype won't hurt China-Malaysia cooperation

Malaysia should be reminded that many words of Kuala Lumpur can be spread to China via the internet, causing different reactions among the Chinese public. How the Chinese public sees China-Malaysia cooperation is by no means inconsequential to Malaysia's interests.

White Helmets controversy reveals Western media bias

However, the US media underplayed the mistake, making no self-reflection. It's hard to prevent another Iraq war mistake from happening again. Perhaps the US is now applying the same logic in dealing with the Syrian government as it did with Iraq.

US absurd to link trade with denuclearization

China's thoughts on trade clearer after talks with US

It is clear the two-day vice-ministerial level trade talks between China and the US produced no significant sign of progress. In separate statements released after the talks, both sides only stressed they “exchanged views” and “conducted constructive and frank” talks, but neither side mentioned any accomplishment, nor did they say whether or when there would be a next round of talks. The result is in line with expectation.

Western hysteria over journalist visa rejection reveals a thirst for the negative

The Chinese have two paths from which they can choose. First, try to make outside opinions on China more objective. Second, focus on self-improvement which will provide Chinese with the strength to ignore foreign “intellectuals.” The second path could be the decisive action the Chinese need to make right now.

Canberra stabs Huawei in the back

In the 4G era, China has witnessed its own mobile payment and shared transportation generally getting ahead of most developed countries. If some nations refuse to open up in the 5G era, they will likely encounter a larger gap. As long as Chinese equipment makers keep improving their technologies and quality-price ratio, their charm will eventually be unstoppable.

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.

US scorn over Sino-El Salvador ties hits new low in recklessness

Washington better realize when it comes to cross-Straits issues, they would be hard-pressed to find an ally willing to fight recklessly with them.

Negotiations won't change China's stance

It has been only a few months since the trade war broke out. China's institutional advantages and its society's resilience have not been fully demonstrated. It is believed that the longer the trade war lasts, the calmer China will be and the more anxious the US.

China-Malaysia cooperation will endure twists and turns

China has undergone tough times during its reform and opening-up process. As it adopts a progressive and pragmatic attitude, it has become a major economy with the fastest development pace. The country's guidelines that seek positivity and stability should be the foundation of how Chinese cope with concrete problems.

After El Salvador, which country will be next to abandon Taiwan?

Taiwan will inevitably pay a heavy price for refusing to recognize the one-China policy. This is not a threat from Beijing, but consequence of running counter to the trend. Taiwan will lose the whole game for not recognizing the 1992 Consensus. It is believed that its authority has no time to feel sad about losing El Salvador as it will soon be anxious and fearful evaluating which country comes next.

Sino-US relations should not steer China off course

China has more room for strategic maneuvering. China does not have to change its fundamental policies to adapt to Washington's needs. The US could enforce more hardline policies against China, but China will always maintain a basis for adopting sound and open policies.
