Washington needs to convince Pyongyang denuclearization is a better option

Instead of coercing Pyongyang to surrender, Washington should try to attract the country away from pursuing nuclear weapons by providing it with more security benefits and convince Pyongyang that nuclear ambitions will bring it more harm than good.

Neighboring disputes need to be understood properly

Solving disputes with neighbors means much to China, as it needs to maximize its support and minimize opposition in its endeavor to achieve its ambitions. When a major country acts modestly, it actually shows a dignity that can accrue more power. Since no one in the world dare look down upon China, China needs to pay attention to more urgent issues.

China-Interpol cooperation suits international efforts

China's activities within Interpol have proved China is carrying out anti-terrorism work within an international framework. Those who accuse China of human rights violations have no idea that if they forego anti-terrorism activities in the name of human rights, they could become the next victims of terrorism. Corrupt officials and terrorists are our common enemies and they shouldn't be condoned by international public opinion.

China charts own path in building world-class universities

China should follow a path with Chinese characteristics in applying the “double first-class.” Chinese universities should develop a world vision, adopt international standards, and become more open in both academic and method applications, and reforming by opening-up.

Freedom of speech no excuse for challenging Chinese sovereignty

If American students' history education is outdated and prejudiced, then future Sino-US exchanges will encounter problems. We hope other Western universities get a lesson from UCSD and offer students a true picture of history, including Tibet's.

Blue sky campaign in Beijing gauges China's progress in environmental protection

Global warming resulted from a development model based on heavy pollution and greenhouse gas emissions leading to abnormal climate conditions in many parts of the world. The survival of humankind will be at danger if environmental conditions deteriorate any further. As the world's second-largest economy, China, is obliged to protect our planet. The first step is to improve the local environment and so contribute to the improvement of the global environment. This best proves that China is a responsible power.

Cambodia justified in alertness to color revolution

Cambodia's economic growth is expected to hit 7 percent this year. Indeed, the country should reform itself to ensure the stability of its political institutions, but color revolutions will only result in unrest, inflicting relentless harm on ordinary people. Cambodia should be alert to Western “export of democracy.” Intervention by the West, directly or indirectly, will not help solve the country's practical issues. A country's economic and political mechanisms are determined by the needs of its people after all.

Campuses in Hong Kong shouldn't become political battlefield

Extreme forces in Hong Kong will not disturb the whole country, but will only cause more disruptions for Hong Kong. We believe Hong Kong society won't allow the city to be wantonly disrupted by the extremists.
