Domestic political infighting takes a toll on Washington's foreign policy

Thirty years ago when former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping met Brent Scowcroft, former US national security advisor and special envoy of then US president George H. W. Bush, Deng said China-US relations have to be improved. Are these words still relevant to today's bilateral ties? Why do we have to improve China-US relations? Global Times interviewed scholars on both sides.

Why China's mobile coverage is superior to that of the US

China has most effectively implemented universal service, which is a feature of the development of human rights in the country. More than 800 million Chinese farmers have enjoyed high-quality and low-priced telecommunications services. This is a miracle in the history of human communications.
