Turkey gropes between West and Islam

For more than 100 years, Turkey has never walked across this bridge to Europe. When facing a conflict between tradition and modernity, the West and Muslims, secularism and religion, it turned to Islam to realize the dream of a big country.

Europe's suspicions of China unwarranted

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the end of the Cold War. Europe should recognize where its interests lie, return to pragmatic cooperation with China and resolve the risks of a new Cold War together with China and other responsible powers.

China should clear air on aid to Africa

Deteriorating Japan-South Korea ties unlikely to look up in short run

Trump's main goal lies in dealing with North Korea's nuclear and missile programs. Frictions between Tokyo and Seoul,which stem from historical issues, will hardly ease soon. In the short-run, their bilateral relations would be neither good nor bad. Washington may get more involved depending on how the situation in the region evolves, including progress in East Asian economic integration, the peace process on the Korean Peninsula, development of China-US relations, and China's influence in the region.

Turkey should shed blinkers on Xinjiang

As Turkey continues to look Eastward amid strained relations with the West, China's peaceful rise and its Belt and Road initiative both provide Turkey an opportunity for healthy development. Turkey would be much better off if it focused on its strategic partnership with China while trying to gain realistic understanding of the Xinjiang issue, avoiding its Muslim leadership aspirations being misused.

Will INF withdrawal reignite arms race?

Dealing with US and Russian withdrawal of the INF Treaty needs the collective wisdom of global politicians. The system of arms control needs to be maintained. No country can secure absolute safety at the expense of international security.

Turkey in no position to judge Xinjiang

Australia smearing China with spying brush

The ignominious times of the Yellow Peril have not been seen Down Under for quite some time, but the ghost of the Red Scare now hovers above. May the fireworks of the Lunar New Year celebrations drive it away and bring hopeful future for China-Australia relations.
