Nauru mars image of Pacific Island nations

It's absurd that Taiwan's future can be decided by a remote Pacific island country. Taiwan's “independent sovereignty” is like melting ice, and it is swimming against the dominant global tide.

Xi's China-Africa guidelines are the keys to the new global paradigm

The "five-no" and "four-can't" are truly inspiring. They correct the concepts of rights and point to the justice of the day. President Xi's points will definitely leave a deep mark on the history of relations between the African continent and China, and the entire world.

China cool to Australia's contradictory policy

China should give up the illusion of persuading Australia to stop containing China together with the US. Instead Beijing should let Canberra calm down and rethink.

China-Africa cooperation charts a new path of mutual benefits

West's sour grapes at China-Africa cooperation

The possibility of the West leading the collaboration with the continent again always exists as long as they do not get their heads jammed by a geopolitical mind-set.

Xinjiang people know their situation best

There has been some misunderstanding internationally about the governance of Xinjiang. Some forces have slandered China's governing efforts there. The recent days have witnessed a new wave of accusations and it peaked when a partisan group of US lawmakers on Wednesday called on the US to impose sanctions on relevant Chinese officials.

US can't shift blame on China for N.Korea policy setback

The world has been thrown into chaos by the trade war launched by the US. If the US makes it more chaotic, will the US be the only winner? Hardly. Beijing and Washington should both make a rule in their trade war: Neither should resort to other means to secure a victory and neither should suspect the other of doing so.

Are Western elites impeding Google's path to China?

Whether Google left or not eight years ago and whether it will return is more important for Google than for China. China has become the world's largest internet market which is open to all. It stands on an equal footing with other markets in the world.

West misreads China-Russia partnership

Last week the US officially re-established its Second Fleet. Earlier, Washington announced a US “space force” and also identified China and Russia as “strategic competitors.” All that is dragging the world backwards. The US government should not make confrontation the theme of this era. If Washington really triggers the retrogression of the globe, it will not be forgiven by history.

Media hype won't hurt China-Malaysia cooperation

Malaysia should be reminded that many words of Kuala Lumpur can be spread to China via the internet, causing different reactions among the Chinese public. How the Chinese public sees China-Malaysia cooperation is by no means inconsequential to Malaysia's interests.

White Helmets controversy reveals Western media bias

However, the US media underplayed the mistake, making no self-reflection. It's hard to prevent another Iraq war mistake from happening again. Perhaps the US is now applying the same logic in dealing with the Syrian government as it did with Iraq.

US absurd to link trade with denuclearization

An overhaul of US politics, economics, trade and security has not made America “great again,” only a destroyer.

China's thoughts on trade clearer after talks with US

It is clear the two-day vice-ministerial level trade talks between China and the US produced no significant sign of progress. In separate statements released after the talks, both sides only stressed they “exchanged views” and “conducted constructive and frank” talks, but neither side mentioned any accomplishment, nor did they say whether or when there would be a next round of talks. The result is in line with expectation.

Western hysteria over journalist visa rejection reveals a thirst for the negative

The Chinese have two paths from which they can choose. First, try to make outside opinions on China more objective. Second, focus on self-improvement which will provide Chinese with the strength to ignore foreign “intellectuals.” The second path could be the decisive action the Chinese need to make right now.

Canberra stabs Huawei in the back

In the 4G era, China has witnessed its own mobile payment and shared transportation generally getting ahead of most developed countries. If some nations refuse to open up in the 5G era, they will likely encounter a larger gap. As long as Chinese equipment makers keep improving their technologies and quality-price ratio, their charm will eventually be unstoppable.
