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.

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.

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.

US report on China's military reveals its guilty conscience

According to a Pentagon report on China's military and security developments released on Thursday, China is pursuing a nuclear capability of its long-range bombers and the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) is likely training for strikes against US and allied targets. The report also claimed that the PLA is also likely preparing a contingency to unify Taiwan with the Chinese mainland by force. Any army needs to be prepared for the worst scenario that the nation might face. If China releases a report on the US military developments which details US army's attacking ability against China, the report must be even more alarming.

German student case distorted by West

Missal seems to have only learned a little from China. Perhaps he has never wanted to learn anything from here. His behavior and remarks showed he has neither understood the logic of Chinese politics and laws, nor learned Chinese people's reserve and modesty. Yet he is very young. We cannot ask too much from him.
