Khashoggi case triggers wider implications

Saudi Arabia may eventually get out of the predicament thanks to its alliance with the US, but part of the losses that Saudi Arabia is supposed to bear may be shifted to its patron. That is why the case is dragging on.

US warning to Latin America disrespectful

Trade war lingers despite US Treasury report

The US is getting excessively petty-minded. The Trump administration declared Wednesday it was pulling out of the Universal Postal Union, which will reportedly save the country more than $100 million a year in postal services. Few countries would want to make money in a public goods industry like the postal union. Such a calculated move actually tarnishes the US national spirit. Washington should never forget what tremendous benefits it gained from the international system led by the US, ranging from the US dollar system to the internet rules. The US has to cherish the international system and refrain from squeezing others due to shortsightedness.

Governance in Xinjiang stands on righteous side

China understands the difference between its own condition and that of the West's. It also understands the differences in values. China will try to communicate more with the West about controversial topics. But whatever China does prioritizes the interests of the Chinese people. The objective and practice of governance in Xinjiang is justified and our belief will not be shaken due to external misjudgment and accusations.

Khashoggi case tests Washington's attitude to human rights

The case shows that there are double, even multiple standards for the West's human rights diplomacy. Non-Western countries should develop human rights. At the same time they should build strength to win more initiative to deal with human rights diplomacy.

Xinjiang's soft landing to peace, stability deserves respect

China needs to strengthen communication with the world over Xinjiang governance, but the purpose is not to persuade Western political and opinion elites who hold a hostile attitude toward China. They don't plan to understand Xinjiang. They more hope to see a turbulent Xinjiang. They are only interested in finding a new perspective to mount an offensive against China and add a fresh angle to their outdated rhetoric.

China's restraint can prevent Cold War

Despite deteriorating China-US relations, China's adherence to reform and opening-up hasn't changed, nor its determination to resolve external conflicts in a reasonable way. China still believes that a peaceful bilateral relationship makes both sides winners while a confrontation makes both losers.

China-US competition could be driving force for human society

While China has underestimated the recklessness of US President Donald Trump, the White House has failed to realize China's resilience against pressure. Neither of the two countries will back off easily from their conflict.

Bloomberg fake report coordinated with US trade war

Many Americans, instigated by anti-China propaganda, may be willing to buy such stories. Bloomberg hasn't apologized or stopped publishing these fake reports. This reflects how unbridled anti-China public opinion has become in the US. Bloomberg specifically targeted China's telecommunication industry, a key area targeted by the US in its trade war with China. China must take actions to correct the wrong.

China, US will inevitably come to 3rd alternative

China is more open to a third alternative. This is not because China is timid, but because China is sincere in its pursuit of a win-win or multi-win scenario and is dedicated to building a community of common destiny. It is hoped that the elites in Washington can carefully read The 3rd Alternative.

Western media refuses to understand China's law in Meng case

Meng is the highest-level official to be investigated since the Supervision Law took effect. We believe the fresh application of this new law will have a magnificent deterring effect upon other potentially corrupt officials.

US should respect China's right to develop

China knows how powerful the US is, and China doesn't want any strategic confrontations. But the US should respect China's right to development. It's morally despicable to stop 1.4 billion people from marching toward prosperity and it is impossible to do so in reality. The US government should remember that Chinese people are the masters of China's own destiny.

Pentagon paper reveals strategy beyond US midterm elections

China does not want to become a US rival, nor challenge or even take the country down. However, China is not a kite in the hands of any nation. Where and when it chooses to fly is entirely China's decision, and its presence remains down-to-earth. When the US incites, the best response is to try to settle things on our own.

In a speech at the Hudson Institute on Thursday, US Vice President Mike Pence launched a broad attack against Beijing. He slandered China by claiming that China is meddling in the US midterm elections. It was the first time that a US vice president targeted China so sharply in a speech since 1972.
