China's approach in Xinjiang best answers Western criticism


China's approach has been in consonance with the real protection of human rights by conforming to the rule of law, guaranteeing better livelihood, and ensuring the right to survive and develop of every terrorist and extremist who can be saved. This is the best response to groundless condemnation by the US-led Western world.

With ties fraying across the Atlantic, will Europe realize futility of toeing the US line?

To make decisions that suit its own interests regardless of diktats from Washington is what many European countries have opted for in the case of Huawei and 5G, because the volatility of the Trump administration is a harbinger of a changing world, in which only self-help is best for the long run.

US should not test China's patience on HK

Trump obviously wished not to push China too hard by showing that his attitude toward Hong Kong is not totally consistent with that of the Congress. But if the US ignores China's warning, continues interfering, and even slaps sanctions on China citing the legislation, the Chinese government will certainly step up its countermeasures.

Young US adults' concerns may affect presidential election

Due to the higher turnout among 18 to 29-year-olds and 30 to 44-year-olds, the percentage of voters under the age of 45 rose to 35.4 in 2018, up from just 30.3 percent in 2014, according to the Brookings Institution.

Using facial recognition tech protects human rights

The development of new technology is unstoppable. Instead of accusing China of putting so-called electronic anklets on Chinese people, Western media should see that China has been exploring the boundaries of the rules of new technology. Such exploration can also be a reference for other countries. Some Western countries should not ignore or even blacken China's efforts.
