Kim's China tour a good start for 2019

On the Korean Peninsula there are currently no more nuclear tests, missile tests or extreme threats between Washington and Pyongyang. That was unimaginable when Trump assumed office in 2017. Washington should cherish this hard-won achievement, follow it up, be determined to prevent retrogression and promote better results.

China should expect more US provocations

China will tread own path steadily in 2019

In the face of sudden escalation of China-US trade conflict throughout 2018, Beijing chose neither a concession nor a confrontation.

US economy exhibits more uncertainties

The US is not familiar with its current political tension, and public opinion diverges on its economic prospects. China should be firm and steady in contact with the US. For China, being flexible as well as persistent will help rationalize China-US interests.

Why Trump withdrew troops from Syria

As long as the US doesn't provoke a real Cold War, China-US relations are destined to be highly complicated. There is a slim chance that Washington will be driven by a certain overwhelming goal in handling China affairs. We should expand instead of further shrink the space of sound China-US bilateral relations.
