South Korea must pay a heavy price for its erroneous decision to stand with and act as an accomplice to the US in suppressing China's strategic nuclear deterrence capability. The US will see China further expand and update its strategic power, while the cost to South Korea will be the huge Chinese market.
China has imposed severe sanctions against Pyongyang's nuclear program through the UN. If South Korea installs THAAD, Beijing's sanctions toward Seoul should be no less than those it imposes on North Korea.
The THAAD installation is a mighty blow against strategic mutual trust between Beijing and Seoul. Ties will inevitably hit rock bottom, and this will be a loss for both sides.
Conflicts between President Donald Trump and the mainstream US media are escalating into warfare. On Friday, the White House blocked a number of influential media outlets, including The New York Times, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, the BBC and the Huffington Post from a press briefing.
Trump has demonstrated extraordinary capabilities in his past successful career. However he should start a new learning process when entering an arena such as the Sino-US diplomacy. We strongly feel that his knowledge about China is ill-matched for his responsibility. Given the gravity of Sino-US ties, we hope it could be remedied as soon as possible in the US institutions.
The point of view from Global Times is that clearly Beijing should remain steadfast in its strict compliance of the sanction resolution from the United Nations Security Council, regardless of what any reaction Pyongyang might have.
Aren't US carrier groups' constant patrols in the South China Sea the most prominent militarization in the waters?
Tsang's case shows that there is no end to building a clean government. A relatively sound legal system and high salaries for public officials failed to stop corruption in Hong Kong.
Owning nuclear weapons will only bring isolation and more danger to North Korea. The Six-Party Talks are a good opportunity for all stakeholders to engage with each other. China supports any move that helps stabilize the Korean Peninsula. It is time for South Korea, the US and North Korea to engage with each other.
Trump may have to spend a considerable amount of time sorting out his relationship with the media as well as realizing a certain degree of cooperation with the establishment. If he fails, it means the US remains unchanged. If he succeeds, the world will see a new America.
The Chinese Commerce Ministry and General Administration of Customs announced Saturday that China would suspend all imports of coal from North Korea starting February 19 until the end of 2017 to implement UN Resolution 2321. Last month, China released a new list of items banned for export to North Korea and the decree is unprecedented.
The meeting sends a positive signal about Sino-US relations, consolidating ties following an earlier phone call between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump. It brought back certainties in the bilateral relations, resuming the communication mechanism between the top diplomats of the two countries.
When the terror slaughter happened in France, the Oriental Pearl tower in Shanghai, China was lit up in blue, white, and red, the colors of the French flag. Yet after thugs engaged in bloody crimes in China's Xinjiang, Western media quoted the WUC as defending the criminals. Western media, do you have a conscience?
India on Wednesday set a new world record by successfully launching 104 satellites on a single rocket, replacing the previous record of 37 satellites launched by Russia in 2014.
Flynn's resignation shows the difficulties that the Trump administration faces to reset Washington-Moscow ties.
The US and South Korea have no right to accuse China on the North Korean nuclear issue. They should be ashamed of trying to shift the blame to China over the mess they have created.
North Korea launched an unknown type of ballistic missile off its east coast toward the Sea of Japan Sunday morning local time. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff claimed that the missile flew about 500 kilometers. According to analysis worldwide, it was not a test of an intercontinental ballistic missile, but more likely an intermediate-range missile test.
This phone call between the top leaders is a sign that some confusion in the relationship has been sorted out at the current stage. The Sino-US ties have, after a little shiver, returned to where they are supposed to stand. Uncertainties still loom but these uncertainties will be about specific interests. The Sino-US relations will continue to move forward under the complicated framework where cooperation and frictions coexist.
