Do not let US drive wedge into Sino-Japanese ties

China's market is much larger than Japan's, and will certainly be much bigger than the US' in the future. Tokyo need not toe the American line and should defend its privilege to take prudent business decisions in keeping with its sovereign rights.

Diplomatic naiveté puts Canada in awkward position

Canada shouldn't have made itself an accomplice in containing China's tech development. This is no good to its interests as China will react powerfully to any efforts to thwart the country's development.

Europe's bruises need more than Pompeo's sweet wooing

If Washington truly walks on a path Pompeo described, its journey is destined to be an exhausting one and will end up badly. The path will have to be given up sooner or later, and Europe is surely not listening to and following the US this time.

Why Crazy Rich Asians failed to impress Chinese audiences

What are Asians like to Americans? Two movies, Crazy Rich Asians, and Shang-Chi, offer some clues. In American eyes, they are either crazily making money or seeking revenge against Westerners for the past hu-miliations.

Blind anger won't help France out of economic woes

Today's France is more known as a country resistant to change. Street protests cannot bring the French people what they want. France has a glorious past built upon the hard work and spirit of sacrifice of predecessors. But the young generation is seemingly forgetting these virtues.

Have Western media given up duty of objective reporting?

Why Xinjiang governance is worthy of copying

Not a single terror attack, big or small, has occurred in Xinjiang for almost 22 consecutive months. Public security has notably improved, people are now feeling more secure and economic development is accelerating. Is this experience not useful for other provinces, including Ningxia, to learn?

US passport can't obstruct Chinese police investigation

The Western media always criticize China for lack of rule of law. But when China tries to hunt down corrupt officials and improve governance, these same media go to a great length to shelter them using the excuse of China's human rights situation. Their logic of human rights can hardly convince anybody.

Can West understand China without understanding the Communist Party of China?

It has been 40 years of reform and opening-up. It is quite surprising to see the West so astonished over Ma being a Party member. The Western media should at least learn some history before judging the country's development.

West misses big picture viewing China via Orwellian lens

Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic to Westerners, but it is just a work of fiction to Chinese and they are fed up with Orwellian style preaching from Western elites. This kind of conversation will lead nowhere.

Knowledge of China curtails Western restlessness

A WWIII of any significance would be disastrous for all and it is something that everyone should have a profound interest in avoiding. But China should keep alert of Western media's WWIII hype, which is simply a rehash of the “China threat theory.”

A challenge to maintain authority of law in internet era

Western accusations, formed out of either a lack of understanding of Chinese laws or deliberately neglecting China's own conditions, shouldn't influence judicial independence in China.

Why Westerners think China's rise defies expectations

It is a good thing that the West has started trying to understand China's rise, not with Western standards but through Chinese lenses. Thus they will find China's rise co-current and not defying anyone's expectations.

Common interests guide China-Maldives relationship

China has always viewed the Maldives as an equal partner. It has never interfered into Maldivian internal affairs or attached any political conditions when offering assistance and investment. It is hoped that the Maldives government and public value such a partner as China and keep bilateral relations on the right track.

Why having a pet dog is a complex issue in China

If Chinese families all raise dogs, simply cleaning up all the dog poop would be a heavy social burden, not to mention the risk of infectious disease or rabies. Raising dogs is a big issue that influences cities' environments and millions of residents' health.
