Supply cut-off cannot stifle Huawei

The pain inflicted on China is temporary. But what the US has to face is growing long-term pain. The so-called decoupling with China is very likely the real beginning of US decline.

China's strong stand benefits Japan, Europe

While China has a quite different political system and ideology than Europe and Japan, China has given both much more respect than they have received from the US. Multipolarization and multilateralism should be the most important principles of the world. No country's interests are allowed to override those of others, and no nation should determine the future of the globe in a unilateral way. China, Europe, Japan and other countries share the same interests on this issue.

Time to discard any illusions about the US

A letter written by He Tingbo, president of HiSilicon, a semiconductor company owned by Huawei, was made public on Friday. The letter is a touching one and has won public support. In the letter, He said that employees of the company embarked on the most stirring journey in technology history in recent years to make backup products for Huawei and now these products will finally be put to use.

US relies on deception and is most afraid of protracted trade war

The economic data of China and the US for the month of April was not good. There are divergent views on the reasons for China's declining retail sales growth rate and especially, its industrial output growth. But amid China's overall expectations that a trade war could have some impact on the economy this year, one month's unsatisfactory data is socially and psychologically affordable.

Why Washington cannot contain Huawei

The US cannot strangle Huawei, nor will it be able to contain the development of China and deprive the 1.4 billion Chinese people of their development rights.

Bannon confronts China with fringe theories

Bannon wrote that the US fight is not with the Chinese people but the Communist Party of China. What he fears most is China's development. Isn't he fighting the interests of Chinese people? We hope he is not the cancer cell of the US China diplomacy.

Can Washington afford war against Tehran?

However, the US overestimates its capability to control risk and underestimates other countries' determination to defend their core interests. Washington will see itself mired in conflicts one by one. In the end, Washington may find there is no extra benefit doing so, but it may lose many benefits of cooperating with the world.

CDAC harmony is an idea Western critics can't understand

American universities not only option for Chinese talent

American universities shouldn't be so arrogant. By leaving China's booming market and leaving Chinese students, those universities would feel regrettable.

Tall tales won't help US win trade war

The Chinese side is obviously more realistic while the US is falsifying. This will, to a large extent, influence how the two countries digest the trade war impacts.

US' maximum pressure policy is useless

China's stance is clear-cut. It is willing to reach a deal but will never make concessions on issues of principle, nor trade its core interests. In contrast, the US' attitude is swaying. Driven by unrealistic anticipation, it has drifted between expressing optimism that exceeds the actual situation and arbitrarily waving the tariff stick. China has clarified its stance and will try to push the situation in a good direction. If the US is to play a roller coaster-style thriller game, it will bear the consequences.

Pompeo displays US insolence to Europe

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a speech at a London conference, almost imperatively asked Britain to change its attitude toward China and its telecom equipment company Huawei. He wants Britain to treat China like the Soviet threat to the West. He also quoted the example of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher in a speech in which he mocked current Prime Minister Theresa May without naming her. He said: “Would the Iron Lady be silent when China violates the sovereignty of nations through corruption or coercion? Would she allow China to control the internet of the future?”

Can Iran nuclear deal avoid collapse?

The undisguised overbearing and capricious manner of the US has affected the world. Such behavior is targeted at Iran today, and it may be another country tomorrow.

China won't flinch in face of tough-talking US

If Washington has its mind set on going back down the path of a trade war, then China will fight it to the end. China has always had a firm stand on a trade war: China does not want it; China is not afraid of it; China will launch it when necessary.

View risks of a trade war objectively

With strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the institutional advantage of maintaining unity in the face of difficulties, China is fully capable of digesting and controlling the losses caused by the reduction of exports to the US. China doesn't want a trade war and hopes to reach an agreement as soon as possible. Washington shouldn't force China to strike back.

Pompeo stands in way of stable China-US relations

Officials such as Pompeo have made it difficult to form stable Sino-US relations. Dealing with ties between Beijing and Washington that may become more volatile in future has become quite a challenge.

Strong Chinese navy guarantee of South China Sea peace

US warships will continue to appear in the South China Sea. However, their voyage will have more symbolic meaning than actual significance.

Calmness is the best response to US' fluctuation in trade talks

It is certain that the Chinese society's expectation of a quick deal is not as high as that of American society. Even if talks fail, the impact on China will be controllable. Washington also desires an agreement, as damage brought about by the trade war is two way. Upgrading and maintaining a long-term trade war is by no means an option for which Washington hopes.
