Dissent can't sway China over SK sanctions

South Korea must pay a heavy price for its erroneous decision to stand with and act as an accomplice to the US in suppressing China's strategic nuclear deterrence capability. The US will see China further expand and update its strategic power, while the cost to South Korea will be the huge Chinese market.

SK must face bitter pill over THAAD

Trump has demonstrated extraordinary capabilities in his past successful career. However he should start a new learning process when entering an arena such as the Sino-US diplomacy. We strongly feel that his knowledge about China is ill-matched for his responsibility. Given the gravity of Sino-US ties, we hope it could be remedied as soon as possible in the US institutions.

Western media's shameless terror defense

When the terror slaughter happened in France, the Oriental Pearl tower in Shanghai, China was lit up in blue, white, and red, the colors of the French flag. Yet after thugs engaged in bloody crimes in China's Xinjiang, Western media quoted the WUC as defending the criminals. Western media, do you have a conscience?
