China-US relations seek inspiration from the past


The year 2019 is special for China-US ties. On January 1, 1979, China and the US established formal diplomatic ties.

Why food supplements draw the Chinese

How would you categorize nutrition products? Do you think they are a kind of elixir, very special and different from the food we eat every day? Or do you think they are like medicine you buy from the pharmacy?

Smearing Chinese investment won't help US

US companies have the upper hand in financing, consulting, management and other “soft infrastructure” fields. As a matter of fact, there is vast potential for Chinese and US companies to cooperate with third-party countries. In this way, not only would relevant countries not have to choose between the two powers, it will also prevent China and the US entering into a new Cold War.

Bloated troops bill may widen US-SK rift

Other US alliance relationships from that with Japan to those with European nations have been severely affected. The US demand to pile up troops cost on South Korea will further dampen the trust of other allies.

Huawei must never cede to US pressures

As the most powerful country in the world, the US is adept at seeking geopolitical interests under legal pretext. There is no power in the world that can effectively restrict it. Ever since Washington began to recklessly pursue "America First," its international relations have entered a difficult time.

Another Canadian misstep on China over Huawei

I applaud Ambassador McCallum for telling the truth and keeping his dignity. Trudeau could have learned so much from the Ambassador, but instead he decided to follow Trump. Former Advisor to Stephane Dionne J Coulon wrote recently: "Canada is powerless in today's world, having not developed the diplomatic, military, economic and influence instruments necessary to adapt. In this situation, neither Trudeau nor Chrystia Freeland knows how to react.” Exactly.

5G competition a new arms race?

It's hard to accurately understand the potential of 5G technology and its significance nowadays. More imagination should be encouraged. However, referring to 5G competition as an arms race and attaching so much importance to the dominance of the technology is typical American thinking.

Canadian reporter complicates Meng case irresponsibly

Canada's current public opinion won't help the country resolve Meng's case reasonably. Some Canadian media and reporters, especially Joanna Chiu, have played an irresponsible role. They are putting the Trudeau administration further into a dilemma, leaving Ottawa no choice but to stand against Beijing. This is not what a professional journalist would do.

Envoy's firing shows sensitivity of Huawei row

McCallum doesn't mean that the Canadian government can find a better solution to get out of the dilemma of Meng case. If the Trudeau government wants good relations with China, it should take active and constructive steps.

Beijing, Seoul indispensable to second Kim-Trump summit

The danger of a breakdown in relations between North Korea and US is more likely to be contained if the two Koreas find a way to keep talking. The North-South Summits last year did provide a valuable channel for an indirect dialogue between North Korea and the US. In this sense, South Korea also plays the role of a buffer if talks become acrimonious.

For China-France relations, the best is yet to come

Since establishing diplomatic relations 55 years ago, China and France have provided the world a model of friendship featuring mutual respect and win-win cooperation.

Resignation reveals political interference

Ottawa is now as sensitive as a frightened bird. A few words by the ambassador should not have posed any impact on court decisions. Nonetheless, judging from the reactions of many politicians and journalists in Canada, McCallum's remarks are like a dreadful monster.
