US' N.Korea policy needs to be realigned


The international community is still united in opposing North Korea's nuclear weapons program and is working together toward the denuclearization of the country. If the US believes in its strength, it should give a chance to Pyongyang to do so.

Obsession with live streamers may prove costly

Live streamers are like ordinary businessmen, and their business is meant to only sell their products – the content of the live streaming, be it their personal experiences or entertaining skills – to the audience. Audiences should pay for the live streaming because the products are worth it, not because the sellers are attractive and are good at praising people with beautiful words. There is no need to be obsessed.

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.

Will US asylum cases review hurt Chinese?

If this becomes the beginning of measures to clean up the political asylum application system, it may be a necessary step to take. But if this is only a one time gig, those applicants caught in the middle are indeed victims wronged by an unfair world.

China-Europe ties need stronger momentum

With international dynamics changing, China and Europe will face tough tests on enhancing common interests, managing differences and competition and coping with relations with a third party. As long as both sides can clarify common interests and strategic consensus, they can work toward their goals despite a bumpy road ahead.

Tokyo strategy 2018 not meant to counter China's Belt and Road initiative

Abe didn't deny that Japan and China share broad prospects of economic cooperation, and that's the reason why he has been positive about the BRI in recent years and eagerly wants to visit China. But to achieve his goal of revising the Constitution, Abe still needs an external political cause. The Tokyo Strategy 2018 is not Japan's plot to counter the BRI, but Abe's political policies have not completely changed as well. Abe's visit to China later this month may send new signals for improving relations with Beijing.

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.

Set rules straight for live-streaming platform

According to statistics of the China Internet Network Information Center, Chinese subscribers to live-streaming platforms reached 422 million as of 2017, growing 22.6 percent annually. The live-streaming industry made an overall revenue of 30.45 billion yuan ($4.4 billion) in 2017. There is a bigger chance than ever for an ordinary person to become widely known. But this sizable industry will only keep thriving if it complies with laws and rules and knows clearly where the boundary lies. To this end, both live-streamers and platforms have to stay conscious of what they can and cannot do.
