Australia seeking gains by escalating regional tensions

Although both Rudd and Morrison warned of the risks of a possible China-US hot war, Canberra completely regards regional tensions as a speculative opportunity for its own gains and strategic ambitions. Australia has actually become an accomplice of the US to intensifying regional militarization and tension.

US an annoying outsider in South China Sea affairs

If China and ASEAN can smoothly promote the signing of the South China Sea Code of Conduct, no matter how hard Washington tries to sow discord, the US will ultimately become nothing but an annoying outsider who cannot impact well-managed, peaceful development in the region.

Be careful about US using 'invisible knife' to estrange China and Russia

In both China and Russia, there are some so-called analysts and observers who skillfully echo and collaborate with the war of words and "mind game" played by the US. Beijing and Moscow should pay close attention to these people.

China supports international sea laws, US the opposite

US' wishful strategy over South China Sea won't work out

The US is disguising itself as a hero who safeguards the regional peace and stability. But in essence, it is drawing countries around the South China Sea into great-power competition. The US is de facto the root cause of escalating tensions in the region.

World voices condemn US' containment mind-set of new cold war

Both sides need to take a deep breath, and deal with the reality that neither is going away, and however much the US and China view themselves as competitors, if we are to avoid catastrophe, they need to pursue a diplomacy of defining competitive coexistence. Next time, the world may not be as lucky as during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Hostile new cold war imperialist narrative needs factual vaccine

This November, while the political winds may sweep the Democrats into the White House, the hostile narrative of the new cold war will remain with us. So, it is our job to provide the public with the context and facts they are missing, and to provide an alternative to a media fundamentally corrupted by its relationship to imperial power.

Aussies lose out with inward-looking world

Australia is a noisy country, with many voices expressing differing views. To a large extent, if kept in balance, this is a sign of a healthy democracy. At the same time, those in positions of high influence need to be sensitive to their own remarks and actions. They should not give too much oxygen to those who would rather polarize.

India has taken the initiative to stand at the forefront of the so-called international anti-China campaign to contain and challenge China. China should not only pay close attention to such a tendency, but also resolutely counter it.

West's accusation over China's win-win cooperation with African countries is unjust

The African Union on July 29 highly commended China for its continued support and assistance to Africa's capacity for disease control and prevention. In the eyes of African observers and people, what does cooperation with China look like? Does such collaboration actually lead to a "dept trap?"

Trump Administration's Foreign Policy: B.L.A.M.E. Game against China

A lot of questions have been raised lately about the US-China relations. Why are they at one of the "darkest hours"? How did they get here? By taking a closer look, one can find that the Trump administration has stepped up a B.L.A.M.E. game against China across the political spectrum, trumpeting a policy that is belligerent, lawless, arrogant, tainted with McCarthyism, and aiming for reelection.

Racism, McCarthyism and Trump's attack on TikTok

Why China recalls 'protracted war' history

In the current fierce international competition, a country will fall behind if it doesn't strive to develop. It will be a test of the sustainability of China's development and the CPC's leadership. This is why the decision-makers have recalled the "protracted war" history.

It is not in the Great Britain's diplomatic interests to alienate China

The British government has always put the maximization of practical interests as one of its founding principles. We therefore believe that a wise policy toward China can be expected.
