US has to exercise caution in using newly minted Hong Kong law

To sum up, Trump has signed another evil law that intervenes in China's domestic affairs and violates the country's sovereignty by using Hong Kong as a stick. However, in deciding how to use the stick and whether it will take the US where it wishes, Washington has to think carefully because the move would probably backfire.

US should heed Kissinger's warning on ties

China needs to have a clearer vision of the characteristics and features of today's China-US relations. China needs to not only boost its confidence, but also give the US enough time to reflect on its containment of China. The US needs to mature in terms of strategy during the process. Washington might not accept China's rejuvenation now, however historical logic has already proved that the most practical and feasible solution to deal with major power relations is through mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and healthy competition.

BRI gives economic voice to small countries

As a rising power in a multipolar world, China is expected to assume a leading role in this endeavor. To that end, the Dialogue of Asian Civilizations in May, held in Beijing, was an apt example. This should be replicated in other countries, even expanded as an inter-continental initiative.

China not in a position to lead the world

China is trying to present some Chinese-style experiences to the rest of the world. It has not forced other countries by any means. That being said, there is no need to encourage China to become the new international leader. It is not what China wants. If possible, other countries are welcome to study more about China's development and learn from some of China's effective governance.

US attempt to drive wedge between China and other countries over COC won't succeed

Facing US provocation, China should keep maintaining peace and stability in the South China Sea together with countries in the region, especially seeking to speed up COC negotiations. If the US and some other countries directly provoke China, China must take necessary or reciprocal measures to increase the cost of opposing China. Beijing should also make it rewarding for regional countries which cooperate with China, which could help them act more rationally.
