US relations with other countries should not target China

Washington should understand that simply training some military personnel or providing military aid cannot make China's neighboring countries develop. China has helped these countries' infrastructure, including power plants, railways and highways, and they serve not only Chinese companies. The infrastructure also helps US and other countries' investment, logistics and electricity in the region. China has set an example for the US.

We believe that effective communication and mutually beneficial cooperation, instead of the hollow promises that the US used to coax ASEAN members, is the best way for regional prosperity.

A racially divided society will not make US 'great again'

US leadership and endurance capabilities in its competition with China will be further undermined. China is capable of bearing the US-launched trade war because Chinese society is unified in dealing with the challenge. Can the US be united to make the country great again? That's a big question.

India needs 3rd-party mediation on Kashmir conflict

The most important thing is India and Pakistan's will and wisdom to seek a resolution to the conflict through political negotiations. Only in this way can South Asia's peace and stability, as well as the interests of countries concerned, be guaranteed. New Delhi should not act against the will of international community.

Unlike US, China never seeks to be world leader

Such a misunderstanding of China stems from a wrong contention, which will thus lead to biased arguments and conclusions.

UK shouldn't be held hostage by US on Huawei issue

It's hoped the UK government makes a wise decision on the Huawei issue. Shouldn't it insist on choosing the best for itself rather than being kidnapped by US foreign policy?

The US cannot strong-arm a determined China

The US is no longer the superpower it used to be, that it can freely manipulate China. Regardless of who is elected US president in 2020, as long as we hold our ground and do what we should, the US won't be able to strong-arm us anymore.

China-Philippines ties a model for cooperation

There will be twists and turns during cooperation in the South China Sea. But the direction to manage dispute and promote cooperation is right. Countries concerned can benefit only if they work together toward cooperative development.

Singapore should manage China ties, avoid US tricks

There will be many opportunities for the two countries to deepen exchanges. Claims that China is taking advantage of people-to-people exchange activities to influence Chinese Singaporeans are actually clichés of the “China threat” theory. Amid intensifying China-US strategic competition, some Western forces may augment their efforts to sow discord in Singapore-China relations. The city-state should be wary of not playing into the hands of them. It's hoped Singapore sees through those attempts and has the confidence to manage cultural exchanges with China.

Violent protestors damage Hong Kong, their own futures

The future of Hong Kong is in the hands of young Hongkongers. As the economic advantages of Hong Kong are declining, young Hongkongers should more rationally think about how to make full use of the huge mainland market to pull Hong Kong out of its dilemma.

Why the US is more anxious for a trade deal than China

There is a consensus in the US to get tough on China, but opinions differ on whether the US should resort to a trade war. The longer the trade war lasts, the more the US economy will suffer.

Parties' rift shows US political system is on the decline

Some say it is because US society is divided. This is nothing more than a far-fetched excuse, because the country could have bridged the gap in society through bipartisanship by choosing optimal policies. Instead, the two major US parties are using the social rifts to promote their own party's philosophy, or worse, for personal interests.

Patience and endurance best for China amid trade war

The Trump administration will eventually fail if it insists on making the trade war a tool of US politics. This may be effective in the short term, but in the long run, it does not work in a divided US.

Some in US deserve 'racist disgrace' more than others

Some Western countries don't even know Xinjiang. Their criticism against China is only based on subjective judgments and biased reports. If China is indeed as horrible as they claim, how can the country earn the support of many Muslim countries?

China should continue to enroll more foreign students

China over the past decades has cultivated generations of outstanding students for foreign countries, be they from developing or developed countries.

Western countries should learn to adapt to Chinese standards

With China rapidly progressing in innovation and advanced technology, its capabilities of standardization have also been growing. This should be viewed in a positive light, as it could drive the standards in certain areas to a higher level.

Patriotic theme in Mulan film shouldn't be politicized

If Disney wants to appropriately tell the story, patriotism should and must be included. Patriotism is natural, and it also explains why the story has been eulogized for more than a thousand years in China.
