Trump's trade war will disrupt world economic order

China's stance is justified. The country also has a systematic basis for political stability and enormous space for economic growth. It's a daunting task for the US to defeat such a competitive rival.

Trump's gamble bets on interests of US public

It is US arrogance to believe that a trade war will exhaust China. But the boot is on the other foot. Trade is mutually beneficial to both the US and China. Scuppering bilateral trade would cause similar suffering to both sides. This simple truth can never be wrong.

Huawei block sours Beijing-Canberra ties

Sino-Australian relations will be cast in a shadow. Perhaps a few Australians want their country to become a political enclave of the US, willing to be a leverage of US right-leaning China policy. But it will come with a price tag bereft of benefit to Australia.

China knows better as Trump tariff strategy tricks US voters

Promote complete denuclearization of Korean Peninsula with further efforts

The US' earlier mindset – it would get back at North Korea after Pyongyang completes denuclearization – needs to be adjusted. The US may need to borrow some wisdom from Eastern philosophy. If it can have favorable interactions with North Korea and do away with its hostile attitude toward the country, the result will only be better.

The SCO serves common interests of member states instead of being a political tool of a few countries. It doesn't target any other power but is an open international cooperation group that should be supported by the global community. The outside world should encourage exploration carried out by this platform.

China should prepare for cross-Straits crisis

Mutual benefit must be basis of trade talks
