US should find a better way to fight terrorism

We won't force other countries to follow the footsteps of China, although what we are doing has something in common with what Americans hope for. If Washington really cares about its people's safety, it should find a more feasible way of counter-terrorism. China's measures can be a good reference.

Dutton harms Australia with groundless provocation

In China-Australia ties, Canberra is the one that has always been anxious, while Beijing has been calm and has the capacity to be so.

Asian century impossible without China-India cooperation

Some observers say Beijing and New Delhi “never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.” This might be exaggerated but makes sense. Only when the two overcome their disagreements and start sincere collaboration can they send encouraging messages over the arrival of a real Asian century.

China's military strength guarantees world peace, stability

Military muscle is not a bad thing. The key is how to use such muscle. After seven decades, it is time for China to show some muscle to the world. China's strength is a reliable guarantee of national unity and world peace. It is also a solid foundation to act against any force that tries to sabotage regional peace and development. China has always pursued a defensive national defense policy, and the 70 years of peaceful rise is China's greatest contribution to the development of mankind.

West should not judge China with tinted glasses

China's sound development has been a sign to Westerners not to judge China through tinted spectacles. China is not secluded from the world but develops in its own way to integrate with the world and even lead the world in some fields.

India should give up its contradictory China policies

Contradictory policies can solve neither domestic nor diplomatic problems. It is hoped that New Delhi will adopt effective measures, rather than relying on national sentiments, to deal with its issues and get along with China.
