India should apologize for drone intrusion

Indian media reported Friday that India is asking China through diplomatic channels to return the drone. The statement by the Indian defense ministry barely mentioned the intrusion, with no hint of an apology. We believe that this is not the time for India to make such a request. India needs to first correct its attitude by admitting the intrusion was wrong. It needs to apologize to China and promise no such incident will ever happen again.

Internet sovereignty not against opening up

US, NK should not make China scapegoat

The possibility of a war on the Korean Peninsula is rising and it is not decided by China. China's strategy should be maintaining its independent stance and principles, pushing the UN Security Council to craft the most reasonable policy and refusing to yield to either sides' extreme requests, be they from Washington or Pyongyang.
