Process of denuclearization remains a sticking point after Singapore summit


The Kim-Trump summit is a historic moment, but it hasn't come to a historic turning point in North Korea-US relations. The priority now is to maintain the momentum of dialogue, especially making sure that the US doesn't back out. North Korea should also maintain its peace offensive with actions like truthfully reporting its nuclear weapons and facilities. Besides, Pyongyang and Seoul should put the Panmunjom Declaration into effect. All parties concerned should be patient, prudent and willing to make compromises.

Wealth key to grasping Trump-era politics

It is interesting to observe Trump overturning traditional game rules. But judging from his wealth background and his network of wealthy friends, I don't think he will be able to topple either globalization or “financilization.” Compared with his predecessors, like presidents Roosevelt and Reagan who saved the US from a capitalist crisis, Trump is more a destroyer than a builder.

Cyberspace is facing paradoxes of freedom versus order and security versus development and any policymaking must be carefully weighed. It will take time to know if the GDPR will transform the EU into a formidable player or an isolated island of data.

Fantasy to link Ivanka trademark with ZTE

If China refused to grant approval to Ivanka's trademarks, the US would say Beijing is putting pressure on the White House. But now it has approved them, the US says China is trading for benefits. Whatever China does, it will be blamed.

Free trade, protectionism and new opening-up

However, it is necessary to establish an open cultural and political playfield, recognizing and respecting all Chinese systems' diversity, without judging them through our lens, our historical experience and our ideological prejudices, as is often the case.

High hopes on Qingdao summit as SCO emphasizes regional security cooperation

The SCO security cooperation is of great significance not only to member states, but also to peace and stability in the whole of Eurasia. The group cannot terminate conflicts among members, but it can help avoid resolution of issues by force.

Europe and Asia – together for a more secure world

Too many players seek confrontation to achieve their short-term goals, instead of building sustainable solutions through mediation. Against this background, those who believe in a multilateral global order have an interest and a duty to join forces. Europe and Asia, together, can be the engine of a more cooperative approach to world politics.
