US foreign aid cut would worsen global woes

Sino-US dialogue must address mutual concern

Noticeably, such a US-centered perspective, which is built on the belief that the US could absolutely dominate China-US relations and wantonly manipulate issues concerning China’s core interests, is arrogant and distorted.

If the country continues to turn a blind eye to malicious online speech and similar “texting” suicide cases, more people could be taken advantage of by terrorists, radical religious groups and other anti-social extremists. Regulating online speech benefits social stability, and China and the US have common interests in this regard.
