India's nationalistic media could disrupt China-India ties

For whatever reason, Indian media should not make such irresponsible and irrational remarks. Differences do exist between China and India. But major progress has also been made, thanks to years of efforts from the two governments. It is time for Indian media to control its nationalistic sentiment. Hyping the gap will only destroy the larger picture of China-India ties.

Investment, not criticism, will heal Rohingya woes

According to the Myanmar Times, Rakhine Chief Minister U Nyi Pu said economic development was “the best solution for sustainable peace” in the state. Instead of pointing an accusing finger at Myanmar, Western countries should offer Myanmar what it needs to prevent poverty from continuing to fuel ethnic division and radical movements in the region.

US playing a dangerous zero-sum game with China

The world order is completely different from the Cold War era, but Washington continues to stick to its outdated state of mind. China is not afraid of US competition, nor has the country ever thought of defeating the US as a major enemy. But if the US insists on playing such a game, China has the ability to fight to the end.

China, Western countries can partner in African development

Africa is no longer the colony of the West. African countries have the right to conduct economic cooperation with any country they want. The deepening China-Africa cooperation and growing Chinese presence attest to the success of the China model.

Huawei funding foreign universities shouldn't be politicized

It is time to shift the debate on Huawei or the entire Chinese high-tech development from a geopolitical matter to a technical one, and a subject of common development. Huawei's donations to developing countries have had a positive impact and have also been welcomed by more national institutions. Washington will find out that it can go nowhere by isolating others' technologies out of ideological confrontation.

Cooperating with China is key to European integration

Philippine foreign minister praises Chinese system

Both Duterte and Locsin's statements reflect the fact that Manila has realized simply copying and relying on the US system will never help. But more importantly, the Philippines should understand this: The best model is not the US system or the Chinese system, but the one that best fits its own national conditions. China's model is in line with its own social and historical conditions, leading to the country's rise. This is the most important lesson that the Philippines and other developing countries should draw from China's unique path of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

Brazil should seek industrial upgrade, not US approval

The US still to some extent sees Latin America as its own backyard. However, the situation in the region is different from that of the past. The US can no longer make Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) countries do whatever it wants. The influence of Washington in the region is now decided by to what extent it helps LAC countries thrive.

Japan's advice on BRI not particularly welcome

But Japan also risks losing out on the vast opportunities presented by BRI. China is willing to see Japan join the initiative as long as Japan itself really wants to. Otherwise, it is not Japan's business to make rules for China: Only China can say what its investment standards should be.

Shouting hollow slogans will not improve India's strength

If India only shouts hollow slogans on Twitter and fails to improve its real strength, the country will not be able to find its way out.

China's gun-control success a lesson for US

In recent years, the Chinese government took further steps to adjust and tighten its regulations on gun ownership in accordance with evolving national conditions. Although the moves are based on China's conditions, the Chinese general road map for strict gun control is worth mulling over for the US, Brazil or any other country with similar headaches. China has developed its proper way, and so can the US.

China needs to revise, improve law for children's sake

Chinese children are the country's future. And the Law on the Protection of Minors should play the role of “the catcher in the rye” – standing on the edge and catch every kid before they go over the cliff. All Chinese children should be able to play in the big field of rye safely and legally, where a promising future awaits them.

Arms race with US does not fit China's development goals

China has no intention of building barriers for a tech cold war. Beijing is willing to be involved in technological competition with the US as long as it is fair and equal. In the same light, China does not fear any military threat from the US, but will not let itself get caught in an arms race by US provocations, as this does not fit China's development goals.

China will not pick sides in India-Pakistan disputes

If Europe continues to indulge US follies, nobody benefits

China's engagement with the world over the past decades has met with twists and turns. Even Chinese private companies like Huawei are experiencing unprecedented unfair treatment. But China will continue pushing forward cooperation based on openness and mutual benefit. Europe will gain more from its interactions with China and find its due place in the 21st century.
