Emasculated US learns to deal with new status by changing policy


With its leadership eroded, America has started changing the nature of its policy. It tries to make up its diminished influence through policy adjustments, particularly bullying and intimidation. This may work in the short term. To avoid direct strategic confrontation with the US, other countries tend to make certain concessions to it. But in the long run, it will hurt the US' own interest. America's relations with other countries, including China, will eventually return to the conventional logic of international relations.

Vote result won't hurt Modi's bid to boost ties

China recognizes India's rise and its development potential, and attaches great importance to bilateral relations. The development of China-India relations should be partly attributed to the Modi administration's efforts and India's awareness of China's significance and the fact that Beijing can bring opportunities rather than threats. Therefore, regardless of the election results, China-India relations will keep developing in the future no matter which party is at the helm of affairs.

Latin America needs development, not zero-sum US games

Latin American people know what is good for them. China's investment and projects will benefit the region, and no amount of Washington's coaxing will change the facts. The US should stop playing a zero-sum game and focus on Latin America's development, if Washington really regards the region as “its backyard.”

World is not bipolar, but multipolar

I don't think the world today is bipolar, but multipolar. A vast variety of issues that the global community has to address is no longer one ideology against another. It is a variety of issues and challenges facing all mankind that need to be addressed in a unified manner. The world is multipolar in terms of the interest and we would like to see a unified, differentiated approach to address this multipolar configuration.

US playing trick on cutting defense spending

China and Russia have responded positively to Trump's suggestion. But it is not easy for major powers to jointly cut military expenditure. Considering the US' military expenditure is much higher than that of China and Russia, Washington may need to cut its budget first. But this may be hard to do because of the US' hostility toward China and Russia. There is a lack of trust and no specific plans for the three countries to cut their budgets together. Trump may need to further show his sincerity by taking the initiative to cut the US military budget.

Strategic retreat the better choice for Iran

In recent years, Iran's strong presence in Yemen and Syria has triggered panic in the Arab world and Israel. If Iran adopts a prudent policy of strategic retreat, war and severe internal turmoil could be avoided. But if it continues to be intransigent, the denouement would be hard to imagine.

China has held its destiny in its own hands. The International Monetary Fund lowered its global growth forecast for 2019 but raised its forecast for China, which shows its optimism with China's ability to handle the trade war.
