London should stop attempting to influence HK affairs

Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, the US Department of State, US lawmakers as well as some Western media outlets have made indiscreet remarks about Hong Kong's democracy in order to create some noise ahead of the celebrations of the anniversary.

Conspiracy theory surrounding Liu Xiaobo absurd

Matters relating to Liu in future should be handled in accordance with the law. Stories maliciously fabricated to make trouble for China will not cure Liu or erode China's legal order. They are only ephemeral bubbles floating overseas. Just let them go.

Liu Xiaobo's medical treatment arouses clamor from West

Senator Feinstein's request for apology absurd

We hope Senator Feinstein will reflect on her comments. Why does she insist her understanding of the Dalai Lama is correct and why is she so sensitive about criticism from the Chinese media? This does not look like an open mind. Those rigid concepts are too rusty.

Sino-US dialogue must address mutual concern

Noticeably, such a US-centered perspective, which is built on the belief that the US could absolutely dominate China-US relations and wantonly manipulate issues concerning China's core interests, is arrogant and distorted.

US' accusation of China using trade as weapon is too hypocritical

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told lawmakers Wednesday that the US cannot allow China to use trade as a weapon. According to Washington Examiner, Tillerson said, "We cannot allow them to weaponize trade. And they are doing that today, and our message to them is, 'you will not buy your way out of these other difficult issues, like North Korea, the South China Sea, with your trade'."

No matter what the reason is behind Wu's stepping aside, the incident won't have a ripple effect as Western media has speculated. These media outlets need to understand that Chinese society is not built around a few entrepreneurs.
