To keep hegemony, US trying to obstruct China's rights in Arctic

China is a near-Arctic country. It has been participating in the region's affairs with an inclusive, cooperative and win-win attitude. China's deepening cooperation with regional countries is not a threat to the Arctic region but rather a mutually beneficial combination of these countries' development need and China's strength in production capacity.

US unlikely to change course in rift with China

China has enough composure and wisdom to drag the US forward. For a long time, bilateral relations are likely to be in a delicate state with US strategic aimlessness and China correcting its own mistakes. The international community has its own way of judging the one who turns its back on globalization and who embraces the world.

Neocons shaping a new enemy image of China

The problem for the US is to find a means of cooperating in a situation in which it is no longer the "big guy on the block." In that respect, treating China as a potential collaborator on terrorism, on the economy, on peace-keeping, and on international financial reform, just might provide a way out of any self-imposed "Thucydides trap." But if we treat China as an enemy, it will have a hard time not becoming one.

West fails to understand China's democracy

Since China's reform and opening-up began in the late 1970s, a great number of Chinese, especially the young, have been to the US for travel, study and work, which has opened up their horizons and helped them understand the US better. This has bridged the gap and laid a ground for cooperation in various fields.

China boosts Ethiopia's space program

Say no to Western media's double standards

The declaration of the fifth summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia (CICA), entitled "Shared Vision for a Secure and More Prosperous CICA Region," explored the possibility of establishing appropriate events for sectors including the media community to expand the scope of people-to-people contact, and the CICA Non-Governmental Forum is just such an event where media outlets from different CICA state members have a wonderful opportunity to share views with each other.

The old can be blinded by false sheen of silver economy

Young people should also pay more attention to seniors' purchases. By spending more time accompanying them, we can better understand their physical and mental needs, preventing them from falling prey to false advertising claims and fraudulent sellers.

Modi govt risks social stability for political gain

Due to the disputes on Kashmir, ties between India and Pakistan as well as other complicated factors, the turmoil in India might continue or even exacerbate. However, since it relates to religious, ethnic, and territorial problems, how India's situation would develop can hardly be predicted.

How CPEC hurdles can be overcome

In order to ensure the safety of Chinese workers in Pakistan and the construction of CPEC, the Pakistani government has set up a special security force, but this does not fundamentally change the current security threat faced by the CPEC and the Chinese in Pakistan. Confronting the challenges, both countries need to work together. Otherwise, not only will the construction of CPEC be unsustainable, but also the original achievements will be wiped out.

Doping scandals show field of sports is not free from scoring political points

The ban on Russia and the unfair treatment of Sun indicate that even China and Russia are powerful international forces, they are still in the disadvantageous position in terms of global public opinion. It is unrealistic to put faith in Western countries to change their deep-rooted discriminatory mind-set. Non-Western countries will have to join forces to be heard.

Race casts shadow on entertaining show

While I was watching Capri's stunts, my churning mind was calming down. I decided to not alert my niece about the unfairness of society. She will certainly have to face it in the future. But I am also certain that she is growing up in a whole new world.

West silent on Xinjiang's 'inconvenient truth'

Besides, Chinese media should take the initiative to post reliable information about hot-spot issues, such as the education and vocational training center in Xinjiang. More detailed planning can be made to increase the effectiveness of news diffusion. As long as Xinjiang develops toward prosperity, and Chinese media's publicity strategy improves, the truth will come to the light eventually. More people will recognize Western media's selective deafness strategy and break away from its lie of objectivity and freedom of the press.

How will Europe respond to China's rise?

Asia is no less challenged by globalization than Europe. The development of Asia is a process of constantly breaking the rules and orders designed by colonists. Meanwhile, it also faces the challenge of how to establish new rule and orders. Breaking and establishing the rules are inseparably interconnected while the shaping of new rules means Asia is making more and more contributions to global peace and development.

Moving videos of village life charm audiences

Can Li represent cultural export? It is meaningless to conceptualize her. Technologies and globalization have made what people pursue almost the same, regardless of where they come from. Yet Li uses the footage to remind people of this Shoshin – a plain and simple life. She tries to tell people – please do not go further and further away from the essence of life.
