China-Singapore relations eye new vistas after several agreements are signed

Singapore is unique to China. Both countries value their cooperation in various fields, which have brought brilliant future for their bilateral relations.

In the meantime, Singapore hopes to strengthen constructive cooperation with China based on win-win mode and upgrade relations with China. Such being the case, the two countries will have an increasingly mutually beneficial relationship.

Can tragedy of great power politics be avoided?

The US and other countries should understand that China has every right to be angry if they always stir things up at our home and in our region. It would be great if the US readopted the Monroe Doctrine, so that it would only focus on the Americas and leave Asia alone.

Western media smacks of double standards

China, Russia can jointly stabilize region

Facts prove the fallacy of 'China threat' theory

I believe the South China Sea is still the hot spot because of the increasing US operations there. How would China react? We will do our utmost to safeguard our sovereignty. That is why whenever US ships come, we make sure that we're going to send our ships to stop them from sailing closer to the Chinese islands and rocks. Although we send them warnings, we also try our best to observe good seamanship. Both have to follow certain rules during the close encounter to make sure there is no miscalculation.
