Criticism should be constructive to governance

We hope the Chinese government and institutions become more open to criticism, which is important. Influential critics should be more constructive but not radical or extreme, which is also important. Moreover, the public should improve their ability to distinguish rational opinions from irresponsible ones. This is the key to improving the country's comprehensive acceptability.

Catering to US interests will hurt EU

The EU can compete with the US in economy and technology, but some want to maintain the EU's secondary status by excluding China. Either the EU forges ahead or will fall behind. Suppressing China won't bring the EU a promising future.

BRI will inject positive impetus in Europe

Some Europeans are concerned that China's rise will hurt Europe. But such concerns won't benefit Europe. Competition always exists, and as a continent that started the industrial revolution, Europe should have confidence. Europe still leads China in technology. Instead of expecting China to stop its development, Europe should move faster.

Western pressure has no effect on China's governance in Xinjiang

China's governance in Xinjiang is practical and realistic. The country is sincere in helping people influenced by extremism. By contrast, some Western forces, driven by geopolitical factors, attacked China's governance in Xinjiang. But good prevails over evil. These forces can do nothing about Xinjiang even if they play all their cards.

Rationality continues to guide China-US trade talks

An old Chinese saying goes, “No discord, no concord.” Another says, “A good gain takes long pain.” After all the twists and turns of the past year, the two countries have achieved new understandings not only of each other's will and strength, but also a recognition for mutual benefit and fairness. Whatever the result, it should be accepted calmly.

Cindy Yang a gimmick of US partisan struggle

Nonetheless, we are sympathetic to Chinese-Americans living in the US. Yang's case displayed a deteriorating political situation for them in the US. Discrimination and prejudice against them will show up more frequently and they are bound to undergo more injustices. We hope they will be more cautious and take good care of themselves.

How can the US monitor the world if we all use Huawei?

Why does the US government always crack down on Huawei? To achieve this, it even uses some disgraceful measures, including slandering the company by exerting its national power.

US hypocritical to criticize China human rights

In the past, we felt that the West, especially the US, was superior to us. But as China develops, we have seen the other side of the US – selfish, paranoid and unpredictable. We can just let much of the US criticism go. The annual human rights report is nothing but a fault-finding mess.

Europe's autonomy tested in Huawei case

Europe must have the courage to distance itself from the US while at the same time develop ties with China and Russia. The world is changing, and so should Europe's strategies. The continent should seek to maximize its interests instead of serving as an adherent of the America First doctrine.
