Can Ramos repair battered Sino-Philippine relationship?

Provoking a neighboring country while turning itself into cannon fodder for games among major powers will bring no benefit to the Philippines. China welcomes Manila to jointly develop natural resources in the South China Sea, but only if the latter does not step on Beijing’s bottom line. This is key to the prediction of whether Ramos will bring Sino-Philippine ties to a new start.

Singapore can play crucial role in bridging China, ASEAN

China should respect Singapore’s choices, and even consult it for advice about how China and ASEAN should deal with their ties after the arbitration. Sino-ASEAN ties are not all about the South China Sea disputes, and Singapore is not a claimant. China cannot afford to push ASEAN members to the US side. As China and ASEAN promote cooperation, there is much room for Singapore to play a role.

Republican convention sends disturbing message

The US has a lot of worries about the rest of the world, but now it has become a source of great concern. Trumpism won’t make the US great, safe or rich again, because a great, safe and rich country believes in pluralism, open-mindedness and cooperation, which the US is casting away.

Arbitration mustn’t distract Beijing-ASEAN cooperation

If ASEAN is ever split apart due to the divisions over the South China Sea issue, it is all the members within the bloc that will suffer the loss. Only by acting as one can they become stronger and maximize their progress. They need China for that, and they need to reach a consensus of abandoning the arbitration award.

Why hasn’t there been a color revolution in China?

It is time for the West to re-evaluate its opinion of China. It’s going to be a historic process. Yet if Western nations can go beyond their previous misunderstandings, carefully research China and acknowledge that there are other development modes that are equally reasonable and efficient as theirs, not only will they stop raising silly questions, more tragedies can also be avoided.

Chinese unfairly scapegoated by US spy witchhunts

When frictions in economic activities take place, both sides had better exercise restraint and figure things out. The last thing that the China-US relationship needs is pointing fingers at the other with groundless accusations.

Cross-Straits joint action essential for sovereignty claim

An old Chinese saying goes “brothers in a squabble at home will join forces against bullies from outside.” Taiwan should drop its pursuit of petty benefits and look at the big picture. If Chinese sovereign integrity cannot be preserved, Taiwan can hardly be left intact.

Institutional, individual efforts needed to cure racism

Violence is no solution to discrimination, especially when it consumes African-American communities. Black people are under no obligation to prove themselves to racist whites. But valuing education and career success can help highlight the ridiculousness of bigotry and encourage communities toward better futures.

Arbitration no condition for maritime cooperation

China will by no means agree to cooperation based on arbitration. If Manila sticks to it, China can exercise its right to safeguard sovereignty within its territorial waters at any time. The Philippines will have to face more serious consequences.
