Reaction to pastor's arrest another example of Western meddling

As is known to all, freedom of religious belief is fully guaranteed in China. However, just like the two sides of a coin, freedom of religious belief and religious activities must be conducted in accordance with Chinese law.

Gun ownership, deaths out of control in US

Massacres and shootings should be deemed a serious violation of human rights. In the world's most modern society, people's lives are threatened by unregulated guns. Isn't this the most severe human rights flaw? The US acts as the world's guard but turns a blind eye to its own human rights defects. People are forced to get used to a US where both modern and barbarous elements entangle in a weird way.

US is using 'cry thief' trick in Taiwan election

To a large extent, the US is the manipulator of the change. However, even if the US can manipulate Taiwan, it can hardly manipulate the entire situation across the Taiwan Straits.

South Korean media must restrain their sensitive nerves

The nationalist attitude of some in South Korean media is the most severe in the entire region. Their actions won't help them earn the South Korean society any extra respect. It is hoped they can restrain their sensitive nerves and show at least a sense of responsibility for maintaining China-South Korea friendly relations. This is the proper conscience and rationality they are supposed to adhere to.

No need to fear joint military exercise

Some Westerners, especially Americans, are vigilant about the benign relationship between China, Russia and Iran. They should examine themselves for such a mind-set. The joint military exercises will improve the three countries' friendship, and they are rational. Only those with guilty consciences will feel uneasy.

2019 protests test each country's tenacity

In 2019, the Chinese mainland's system superiority helped the society respond soundly to the US-launched trade war, prevented Hong Kong's turmoil from spreading to the mainland and enabled the country to independently take necessary governance measures on the Xinjiang affairs so that peace and stability have been consolidated in the whole region.

US provocations on Taiwan will eventually backfire

Western divisions lead to biased mentality

The US and Western political and public opinion elites should realize that the Western political system is unleashing negative energy that is splitting society. They should try to prevent such Western political logic extending to the outside world. This is the moral responsibility that they should assume facing human society in the 21st century.

'Foreign forced labor' another fake story to slander China

Some Western media outlets allow people like Humphrey to expose nonsense, seemingly objective, but in fact they are using specious details to create an illusion about China. It must be said that this is shameful.

Timing right for trilateral cooperation

Who am I? Who are my neighbors? What are my interests? Answers to these questions will inevitably produce a new dimension due to the changing times. Chinese, Japanese and South Korean societies should never turn numb in facing these major issues.

Dirty public opinion war won't deter China's governance in Xinjiang

Human rights in the slogan cannot replace the rights that more than 20 million people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang cannot live without every day. Misunderstandings will eventually melt, lies will be deflated or laid bare with facts.

US sanctions prove to be spent force

It is unrealistic and unnecessary to unite countries and boycott US bullying. But every country should resist unilateral US pressure in the service of its own interests. This would be a better choice than easy surrender to the US.

West shows ill will to ignore Macao's boom

Before the return, Macao's GDP per capita was much lower than that of Hong Kong, but it is now nearly double that of Hong Kong. This refutes all kinds of arguments. Time will tell.

Impeachment shows hypocrisy of partisan politics

To deal with a US that is undergoing domestic struggles, the Chinese people should have more patience and prepare for uncertainties. The US is the only superpower. We have no other choice but to cope with challenges from the US.

Relaxing NK sanctions also benefits US

Sanctions are not almighty. Flexibly putting and lifting sanctions is in line with the real meaning of sanctions. It is regrettable to see Washington tightly holding on to sanctions.
