As Taiwan loses allies, we must be wary of desperate moves

A detailed plan should be made to deal with independence forces step by step and not give them a break. The mainland should also prepare for reunifying Taiwan by force while making continuous efforts to seek a peaceful reunification. Beijing will never allow any separatists to split Taiwan from the country. The Tsai authorities had better return to the correct track of abiding by the 1992 consensus, not misjudge the situation and not push things into a worst-case scenario.

Understanding China-EU cooperation with rational mind

As China grows stronger economically and has a bigger say in the international community, more countries seek cooperation with China. In today's world where countries are entwined in each other's interests, more cooperation is a natural outcome and on an equal basis. In this process, mutual respect is essential while a condescending view must be abandoned.

Joint efforts of China, EU needed to fight unilateralism

Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, has noted that "Now we have a leaderless, multipolar world. While we may talk about the G7, G8 or G20, the more apt description is G-Zero. We will have to learn how to live, and thrive, in this new world." This is the part where Beijing and Brussels carefully deliberate how to enhance their cooperation, which is not simply aimed at easing the stress brought on by the US, but at maintaining and improving the current global order.

As a pragmatist, he must have known that cooperation could help promote Malaysia's economic transformation and assist the nation's infrastructure construction. It is to be hoped that Malaysia's new government can treat its collaboration with China with a fair-and-square view.

China forming acceptance of LGBT people on own pace

The move of Mango TV is not necessarily correct. Perhaps greater flexibility leading to a more open society will be more welcomed. But is it really necessary for Western media to impose their political correctness on China ?

Social credit system China's answer to credit crisis

Judging China by Western standards is therefore biased. When it comes to the social credit system, countries everywhere are exploring. Why can't China use modern techniques to try out this system? Doesn't the US track traffic violators with surveillance cameras?
