Iran needs to find ways to weather sanctions storm

The coming few weeks may be important to observe Iran's diplomacy. President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif both said that whether Iran will restart enriching uranium depends on the other five parties' talks. Since the five countries promised to keep the deal, Iran will ask for specific measures, for example, comprehensively removing economic sanctions and increasing investment in the country. The other five parties shouldn't submit to US pressure. Iran's negotiations with the five countries will in turn trigger another round of games with the US. We will have to wait and see.

China beckons in remote island nation

China has grown to be a powerful and completely different country from what it was known to Chinese living overseas. In addition to traditional Chinese culture brought into Mauritius over the centuries, there is a lot about today's China that's worth being told about. The local coordinator of our delegation surnamed Shen, who has been in the island nation for two years, told me that he taught staff of the resort we lived in modern Chinese cuisine and some Chinese cultural performance. I hope that one day people in the archipelago nation will be able to learn more about both the traditional and modern outlook of China. So are those in Africa.

China-US competition: marathon, not boxing

Reviewing the history of the establishment of China-US diplomatic ties in the past 40 years, we could conclude that bilateral relations are far more complicated than they were between US and the USSR. While US-USSR relations focus on competition and conflict, China and the US are highly interdependent. With both competition and cooperation, trade relations of the two countries are also too hard to be driven a wedge into.

As maverick Trump launches trade offensive, China should be well prepared

I believe that the US will not drag the situation to the worst since that would damage the US itself and hasten the fall of its hegemony. To stop making reckless decisions is the best choice for Trump.
