US should desist from roiling South China Sea


Washington has taken a more active stance toward Southeast Asia, trying to restore and consolidate security relationships with regional countries and allies. But Trump's hard-line policy on the South China Sea has been counterproductive for regional stability.

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.

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.

US shutdown points to underlying weaknesses

On the whole, the partial government shutdown is an inevitable outcome of the US political system. Its frequency poses a challenge to the US, but even with the problem clearly in sight, there is no solution.

The international community should respect Venezuela's sovereignty and right to self-determination, oppose interference in its internal affairs, and be wary of the “Monroe Doctrine” once again sowing seeds of disaster in Latin America.

Venezuela's problems can only be solved by its own people

A country's problems should be solved by its own people. If both the Venezuelan government and opposition faction can turn political strife into joint efforts to improve people's lives, it will benefit the entire country and also meet the expectations of everyone in the world concerned about Venezuela.
