Western report on Skynet bigoted, fatuous

When building systems like the Skynet Project, China should pay high attention to the confidentiality of relevant information and ensure they won't infringe on the privacy of our citizens. This is the foundation on which the country can garner the long-term public support for its information collection and credit systems.

'Bannons' of the world upset Sino-US ties

We need to be fully prepared for a long struggle against the “Bannons.” China needs to prove with its strength that what they want for China will in no way become reality.

Hegemonic US accuses China of economic aggression

The US shouldn't try to extort China with public opinion and non-trade means. If the Trump government provokes insensible trade frictions with China for political gain, it will probably backfire. As no US administration has launched large-scale trade warfare with China so far, Trump should refrain from being the pioneer. A trade war with China will negate Trump's economic accomplishments.

China should not apologize for beating

The Chinese public will not allow its government to apologize to foreigners when it has done nothing wrong. If the South Korean media truly wants an apology, they should make the request to KOTRA or the South Korean government.

West suspicion of China infiltration absurd

English is taught in many kindergartens in the country: Is China training spies from childhood? This question is ludicrous in the same way as the West upping vigilance against Chinese influence.

India should apologize for drone intrusion

Indian media reported Friday that India is asking China through diplomatic channels to return the drone. The statement by the Indian defense ministry barely mentioned the intrusion, with no hint of an apology. We believe that this is not the time for India to make such a request. India needs to first correct its attitude by admitting the intrusion was wrong. It needs to apologize to China and promise no such incident will ever happen again.

India must apologize for drone intrusion

The Indian military argued that the vehicle intruded into China's airspace due to a technical malfunction. This explanation convinces no one. India's failed reconnaissance reflects both the country's poor morality and technology.

Internet sovereignty not against opening up

It is hard to reach a consensus over the divergence between China and the West when it comes to their systems and ideologies. But both sides need to have an open mind toward each other, rather than simply attaching a label to the complicated area and lay all the difficulties on their different political systems.
