MTR should avoid kowtowing to HK radical forces

Without a stable and prosperous Hong Kong, where is the future of the MTR and the Hong Kong people? The management of the MTR should not lose its way. It's time for the MTR to take a firm stand. It should do its part so that Hong Kong does not lose its tomorrow.

Western media humiliates detained HK resident

It is disgraceful to be caught for soliciting prostitutes. Those who are arrested usually wish to hide the truth. Shenzhen police also told Global Times that it was at the request of Cheng that they did not inform his family. In other words, if the British foreign ministry and Western media did not hype it, Cheng could have quietly returned to Hong Kong after being detained for 15 days.

Arms purchase puts Taiwan at risk

If the island's authorities are bent on their wrong way, the mainland will increase military pressure on the island. Simultaneously, the probability of cross-Straits military frictions will grow, which will boost the likelihood that the PLA will take forceful military measures to punish the island. The DPP will pay for its ventures.

Pence's threat on HK affairs outrageous

The US wants to revive its domestic economy, but choosing a conflict in such an important direction is bound to lead to a serious distraction of resources and attention. China will stand firm, not fail, and history will conclude: America has chosen the wrong adversary at the wrong time.

White paper exposes lies on Xinjiang training centers

China on Friday released a white paper on vocational education and training in Xinjiang. For the past two years, the vocational education and training centers have been the focus of debate on Xinjiang affairs.

US economy cannot sustain its bullying policy

China will take necessary measures to counter Washington's decision to impose tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese products earlier this month, the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council said Thursday, following a phone call between top negotiators of the China-US high-level economic and trade talks on Tuesday. This shows the China-US trade talks deadlock has not yet been broken. The US' recent announcement that it would delay tariffs on some of the Chinese products did not impress Beijing.

Futile for Washington to play HK card

The incident in Hong Kong won't be a repeat of the June 4th political incident in 1989. Washington will not be able to intimidate China by using the turmoil 30 years ago. China is much stronger and more mature, and its ability to manage complex situations has been greatly enhanced.

Assaulting reporters must be condemned

No matter what the stance is, media should not exploit details purposefully to deviate the whole thing from the most important focus: Radical protesters brutally attacked Fu. Such violence should not be allowed, and this should be the common voice of media from the mainland, Hong Kong and the world.

Color revolution aims to ruin HK's future

The Chinese government will never allow extreme opposition and the West to pull Hong Kong into the anti-China camp, nor will it allow the city to slip into long-term chaos or become a base for the West to subvert China's political system. This is a grim fight between attempts to deprive and defend the city's international financial center status.

Unilateral move will incur risks for India

Territorial, ethnic and religious disputes are concentrated in Kashmir. It is not India's internal territory. The United Nations had passed resolution regarding Kashmir's status. India's forceful measure to change the region is unlikely to go smoothly. New and old hatred toward New Delhi's unilateral decision will plant traps in the road ahead for the nation.

US operates thuggish diplomacy in Hong Kong

The US “ringleader” plays dirty tricks, but it does not have Hong Kong's governing rights. As Hong Kong's patriotic groups bravely stands out with the support of central government, conspiracy will be smashed, turmoil will be ended and rioters will be punished by law.

Persistent riots in Hong Kong unacceptable

Hong Kong citizens mustn't be fooled by the US and other Western countries. Hong Kong is home to 7 million people. Long-term turmoil will ruin their lives. People must support the Hong Kong SAR government and police to restore order.
