Hong Kong opposition's pipe dream of amnesty to the mob

Hong Kong's opposition and radical protesters have ridiculed themselves by demanding that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government not prosecute lawbreaking demonstrators. We believe that the SAR government will never make concessions to them on the issue.

US geopolitical zealots lack wisdom on China

The letter makes us realize that there are supporters of extreme stances toward China in the US. China must accelerate strengthening itself with rational foreign policies and increasing capabilities to deal with false accusations. This is the best counterattack to the letter and other similar challenges.

Restricting HK police damages rule of law

Hong Kong police face the risk of being attacked by the mob, “flesh search” by the online mob, which has severely restrained the police force. This is no longer how a society under the rule of law should operate. If Hong Kong continues to regard rule of law as its core value, it must treat police law enforcement correctly.

Hong Kong rioters can't get away with their acts

The rioters should stop as soon as they can. They won't have a way out by antagonizing Hong Kong laws and the Basic Law. The central government and Chinese people will resolutely make sure this principle.

China shows prudence in US trade row

The consensus reached by the two state leaders at the G20 Osaka summit set a new goal to end the trade war. The two have already exchanged goodwill, and negotiating teams have held two phone talks. Face-to-face talks are soon to happen. We hope such momentum will lead to a real outcome.

China bashers can't dictate US policy

We hope it is not the “miscellaneous troop” which is always making waves. The US needs politicians and academics with a broader strategic vision and greater insight and responsibility.

Hong Kong's 'silent majority' won't stay silent forever

If Hong Kong loses its rule of law and becomes a political battleground, it will have an uncertain future. That is against the wishes of Hong Kong residents, and China will not allow it to happen.

US insults the world with Pence, Pompeo lies about Xinjiang

China's human rights cannot advance without peace and development. Pence and Pompeo are talking nonsense. The international society is much smarter than what they think.

US mistakes sit on wrong side of history

Pride has always been a significant US enemy. A country must learn how to be modest and restrained. Moving in the same direction is the best choice when minimizing risks for both sides. Confrontation should not be a 21st-century game. It is a trap that China and the US should work together to avoid.

Religious freedom card of US ridiculous

It is increasingly difficult for the US to disturb Chinese society. Xinjiang and Tibet have restored order long ago with the constant economic and social accomplishments. A new harmony has been shaped between religious freedom and social order.

Western pride and prejudice must stop

It is not that Chinese diplomats were trying out "wolf warrior" rhetoric. They were just telling the truth and accurately revealing Western politicians' lies. China will not stay silent in the face of groundless accusations from the US and the West.

China's sanctions to show teeth to US firms

The US attaches more importance to China's recently announced sanctions on US firms selling arms to the island of Taiwan than before, because China is growing stronger. We are more capable of safeguarding our national interests and launching precise counterattacks on entities that harm China's interests and national security.

US remains oblivious to China's trade war attrition stamina

The US has yet to experience anything positive from the trade war, and Washington's self-proclaimed early victory is an attempt at lying to oneself and a nation.  The pack of lies generated by the US is destined to be exposed. Truth and facts will continue to bother politicians in Washington more than anyone else.

Much potential remains for China's economy

China has enormous economic potential. There is still much room to reshape ordinary people's life, which is the core of the potential. That makes China one of the most promising major economies. Much remains to be done in unleashing its full potential.

Rationality should be anchor for China-US ties

China-US ties are haunted by misunderstandings. An accurate mutual understanding is the basis to reduce strategic mistrust between Beijing and Washington. The Chinese are aware of the differences between China and the US. The differences in politics and ideology are not the real thread of contradictions between China and the US or the West.

China on the right track in tackling terrorism and extremism

China's governance in Xinjiang is of great value to anti-terrorism and de-extremism, and it has been proven effective. This should be praised instead of being criticized.

How to treat foreigners, let nature take its course

In recent days, several cases and disputes related to foreigners, particularly foreign students, have aroused public concern. In Xuzhou, East China's Jiangsu Province, 19 drug users were detained as a result of an anti-narcotics crackdown. Among them 16 were foreigners, including 9 students. In addition, a video of an international student pushing a police officer, who had stopped him on the street for illegally carrying a person on electric scooter in Fuzhou, was widely viewed online.
