More PLA moves await Taiwan separatists

The mainland's flights and live-fire exercises are a clear warning to Taiwan independence forces. It's unknown whether the two B-52 bombers really flew close to the mainland. Even if they did, two B-52 bombers are far from enough to deter the mainland. But the actions taken by the PLA have changed many people's expectations on how the Taiwan question will be solved. This is just a start.

Upcoming trade negotiations a tough job

The US delegation is welcomed to China for talks and it's believed the Chinese side will also show its sincerity. But we shouldn't have any illusions. It is not a big deal even if no agreement is reached.

US sincerity key to peace on Korean peninsula

Washington may still hope maximum pressure can bring magical results. It doubts North Korea's sincerity, but whether Washington is sincere or not is also a problem.

US has no grounds to judge human rights

Americans don't care about the well-being of ethnic groups in Xinjiang. What they care about is stirring trouble, using their discourse hegemony to create obstacles to China's diplomatic and domestic affairs. Nonetheless, China's human rights record has been continuously improving. It won't be bothered by the West's judgment of it.

US, allies must react positively to NK move

The US is still key to the future peninsula situation, and South Korea wields influence on the US' attitude. Seoul has played a role since the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, and it needs to urge Washington to continue making adjustments.

World needs to encourage North Korea with concrete action

The international community should change its stereotypical view of North Korea and understand the difficult situation the country has undergone under pressure from the US-South Korea alliance. Western media needs to stop their attacks on North Korea, and create an enabling environment to achieve denuclearization on the peninsula.

Why China cannot concede in trade war

Washington has unrealistic fantasies about “balancing China-US trade.” It tries to solve US economic issues with sticks and threats rather than painstaking reforms. Simply put, it attempts to make a hard sell. The world is required to buy whatever the US produces at its convenience, and developing countries like China cannot make technological progress in the process.

American business to pain together in ZTE case

Washington's thinking that this is a unilateral punishment is naïve, and this short-sighted judgement will be paid at the expense of American companies and enterprises.

N.Korea's security concern must be heeded in Kim-Trump summit

Major countries must back North Korea pursuing its legitimate rights and interests. Let us hope Beijing's sophisticated understanding of the situation is appreciated in Washington and Seoul.

Time to start manufacturing chips domestically now

China won't allow the US to use chips as a stick against it. China can take steps to replace foreign-made chips with domestic. Determination is the key. The Trump administration is helping us make such a decision. Probably we will be grateful for Trump's ban some day in the future.

Revamped ties positive for Japan, China

China and Japan should review the four political documents between them and jointly put their ties back on track. This is the big picture between the two and all other strategies should come second.

Reckless strike on Syria a shameless act

It is worrying that the US may disturb Syria with yet more missiles from time to time, throwing yet more salt on an open wound of a country.

US, allies risk Russian retaliation in Syrian attack

US President Donald Trump announced on Friday he ordered strikes on the Syrian regime in response to a chemical attack last weekend.

The Russian Embassy in the USA said in a statement that "insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible."

The Chinese navy has rapidly developed, and we believe it will continue to do so until it reaches its maturity. China will be more secure and the world more peaceful as the Chinese navy sails into the deep blue sea.

Moscow faces serious test to resist West

Once NATO takes direct military action against Syria, will Russia fight back? Does Moscow have the nerve and the ability to do so? That would be the test. But once Russia fights back, what would that mean for the world? An even bigger test.

China to open wider: How will US react?

If Washington thinks China's upgrade of its opening-up was triggered by US menaces, it is making a historic mistake in its relationship with Beijing. Whether the Sino-US trade war is aggravated depends on Washington. It is hoped US actions accord with Trump's pleasant tweets rather than more old carrot-and-stick
